British funnyman Steve Coogan is facing a driving ban after his vehicle was caught speeding, according to reports.
The Tropic Thunder star’s Range Rover was clocked by a speed camera exceeding the 30 miles-per-hour limit in Hove, south-east England in October.

He allegedly failed to tell police who was at the wheel of the car, and his lawyer told a court this week that Coogan intends to plead guilty to a charge of failing to provide the driver’s identity.

The offence carries six penalty points, which would take the comedian to the 12-point threshold for disqualification, reports Britain’s Daily Mirror.

The star’s legal representative has written to Brighton magistrates declaring the star was not driving. The case was adjourned until next month.
