''Never Agree With The Court's Judgement'' - Disgraced Ex-Arsenal Striker Reacts To Electronic Tag On Instagram
The former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has never been one to shy away from attention and he has been back at it on Instagram.
Bendtner received a 50-day sentence for assaulting a taxi driver and he marked the start of his period of house-arrest by posting a picture on his Instagram feed.
The photo on social media shows the Rosenborg forward's electronic tag on his ankle, along with a lengthy stream of text to explain the events that took place in Copenhagen in September, when Bendtner hit a taxi driver after leaving the cab without paying a fare.
Of course I wish it hadn't happened. Both for me and for the taxi driver involved who subsequently lost his job.
No matter how he behaved and what he said, it's not something I wanted for him. There were undoubtedly many other and better ways that each of us could have resolved our disagreement.
If I had just paid the amount the taxi meter showed, my girlfriend and I might not have been pursued by a car with an enraged driver behind the wheel.
If only I hadn't made this decision, which I made in a split of a second while everything was boiling over.
Bendtner has decided not to appeal his 50-day sentence in order to be ready for the start of the new Norwegian Eliteserien season with his current club Rosenborg, who the player described as the "most loyal employer".
I will probably never, agree with the City Court's judgement, but I have dropped my appeal because I would like to be ready for the season with Rosenborg.
Bendtner scored just five goals last season as Rosenborg won their domestic league title, although he did score two goals in their Norwegian Cup final victory last month.
