You have to think that being caught up in a drink driving accident which seriously injured some team mates would leave you on your best behaviour for a long time, but that’s not always the case.
As reported by The Daily Mail, Mason Bennett was involved in an accident with Derby teammates Richard Keogh and Tom Lawrence – a car crash where there was alcohol involved.
Unfortunately this video has emerged on Bennett’s Snapchat earlier today, and it won’t be well received:

The report goes on to feature an apology from Bennett, but you have to wonder if it will be enough – especially when the “I’m sorry if you’re offended” sentiment makes an appearance.
Bennett said: “The video that’s come out was a private joke, didn’t mean any harm to the derby fans. The club has been great with me and will always be grateful. I apologise if I’ve offended anyone.”
It doesn’t look like there’s a lot of support for him on Twitter either:
Mason Bennett. Bang average footballer and a very poor role model. Should’ve gone for the drink driving disgrace along with Lawrence imo. #dcfc must have grounds for dismissal here.
