For driving without a license 


Borussia Dortmund and Germany winger Marco Reus has been fined more than half a million euros for repeatedly driving without a licence, Bild newspaper has reported.

The 25-year-old international was allegedly stopped by police several times and received speeding tickets on at least five occasions since 2011 before authorities realised he had been driving without a licence ever since.


"I decided back then to take that road but the reasons I did it are something I cannot really understand today," Reus was quoted as saying in the German paper.

Dortmund's prosecutor's office said the fine was 540,000 euros (£425,247) related to incidents from 2011 until this March.


"Today I know that I was too naive and that it was stupid. I have learned my lesson and this will not happen again," Reus said.

in germany fines relate to how much you earn and are worth


And the fact that he continually ignored them for a sustained period made the fine that much worse.
