Belgian Soccer Player Jonathan Legear Crashes into Gas Station with Porsche

Jonathan Legear decided to go off-roading just long enough to run into a gas station. Funny where they decide to put those things these days. 

Yahoo Sports (h/t Bob's Blitz) has more on the 25-year old midfielder from Tongeren who reportedly stepped on the accelerator accidentally, causing his Porsche to go rocketing through a gas station. 

Legear was back at home after not being called up by Russian club Terek Grozny. While you might think the young man was beyond drunk to pull off this maneuver, he has some words to suggest otherwise. 

I accept the consequences of the accident under the law. Contrary to the judgment already made by some media, I was not in a state of deep intoxication and my blood alcohol level was only slightly above the legal limit. 

If true, I don't want to see him when he is severely over the legal limit. 

Miraculously, there was only one bystander who received minor injuries, but the gas station was left in shambles. 

Per the report, estimates put the damage at between 250,000 and 300,000 euros, an amount the footballer vows to repay. 

If all this weren't enough to have your head shaking for days, consider this part of the report. 

Police seized the 25-year-old's licence pending a judicial investigation into the incident.

In 2009, Legear was sentenced to 50 hours of community service after crashing his BMWX5 into a house returning from a night out.

Um, what's with this dude and hitting enormous inanimate objects that are stationary?

If you happen to be in the Tongeren area and are near a house, gas station or any other building that is completely visible and quite big, watch out. 

There is a midfielder that apparently doesn't need to be way over the legal limit to crash into these things.
