A FOOTIE ace was fined £5,000 and banned for six months after crashing his Lamborghini into parked cars.
Sheffield United forward Lys Mousset, 25, fled the wreckage after losing control of his £350,000 Aventador and tried to claim his cousin had been driving.
But one local joked: “Mousset is a regular up and down these roads. You can’t miss him — he drives the only bright orange Lamborghini in Sheffield.”
Prosecutor Ellis Wilsdon said residents heard “a high revving sound” before a “loud bang”.
Police found the £20,000-a-week striker a few streets away after the January smash.
He failed a roadside breath test and was arrested.
But he escaped prosecution after a second reading at the police station was under the limit.
The French player, whose team are nicknamed the Blades, initially told police his cousin had been driving the car in the 30mph residential area.
He came clean a few days later.
Sheffield magistrates heard the Lambo must have been travelling at “substantial speed” and been on the wrong side of the road
Mousset admitted driving without due care and attention and failing to stop after an accident.
He already had nine points for speeding.
