    Default Danny Kent - Suspended Sentence, Knife Attack Shocker

    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-...shire-49355787

    Blimey. Nice lad I thought, but who knows. Carrying a knife to collect a debt. Hmmm

    Uses a knife in conjunction with his job. Bike racer ?


    This could really kill his career.

    But it was only for opening boxes at work! It must have fallen out of his pocket when he was collecting he debt, after the 60 year old man put him on the ground.

    Seriously - what an idiot, especially considering the current knife situation. I can't see any sponsor wanting anything to do with him and that would pretty much kill a racing career I imagine.

    I think the 60 yr old chap floored his brother, then he came to the rescue.

    Good point. Reading it again I think you're correct. Still not his finest hour though.

    Going armed and in company to collect a debt is the behaviour of a gangster. He’s bad.

    You can open some big boxes with a 6” long knife.

    Looking on the bright side, he'll never lose another race in the USA again.

    On the other hand not only is his racing career over, so is his debt collecting career.

    As the offence was in March and he admited it, the team should have known well in advance.

    UPDATE: Danny Kent has lost his BSB ride as a result of the court case.“Danny was today given a suspended sentence by a magistrates court and we cannot condone criminal activity of any nature,” said Bike Devil MV Agusta UK team principal Dave Tyson. “He has been released from any further obligations he had with us.”
