Robby Gordon slapped with a $4000 fine

Robby Gordon has gone through some tough phases in his life, but his recent misdemeanors have left the Darwin local court judge no other option than to slap several fines amounting up to AUD$4150. Police identified Gordon as the driver as he performed a burnout in the Stadium Super Truck. The judge wasn’t impressed by Gordon’s lawyer who countered the fine saying that Gordon happens to be a professional driver. Judge Richard Coates has reiterated his decision in front of the media saying one knows what to do when you are driving, but it is improper to commit such acts. Gordon, who seemed a tad bemused said that he asked the security guards whether he can whip a couple of doughies to which they replied that they could not have cared less.
