FOOTIE badboy Danny Simpson stunned onlookers by turning up for his community service at a humble charity shop in a £200,000 supercar.
But the millionaire Leicester City ace could be in more trouble with authorities as his Lamborghini was missing a front registration plate.
Simpson also saved himself a few quid on parking charges by leaving his car in spaces at a nearby pub marked: “For customers only.”
One resident said: “You’d think he might show a bit of humility, but instead he rolls up in one of the world’s most expensive cars.
“It’s no wonder Premier League footballers get such a bad name.”
Simpson, 28, was ordered to do 300 hours of unpaid work after being convicted of throttling his ex Steph Ward, 25, who is the mum of his three-year-old girl.
Simpson has been working at an Age UK charity shop in Monton, Gtr Manchester, where he helps to sort bundles of donations.
But instead of paying £3.50 to park in a council facility near the shop, he has been leaving his Lamborghini Huracan at the nearby Bluebell pub. One regular said: “We guess he couldn’t be bothered forking out a few quid to park there.” But pub boss Martin Hughes said he “didn’t really mind”.
Penny-pinching Simpson, who began his career at Manchester United, told The Sun: “I didn’t know I had to pay. I’ve got no comment. I thought it was free.”
But the former Newcastle and QPR defender could be forced to pay up to £1,000 for the missing number plate.
A DVLA spokesman said: “It is an offence. There are no exemptions.”
