Stags give Aliff another chance

Tampines Rovers has reportedly given Aliff Shaffein another, and likely his final, chance.

Surprise. Yes and no.

After all, who will dare employ the 28-year-old with the trouble he is in now thus the Stags are his only life jacket and let hope Aliff appreciate it this time round as this is not his first brush with the law.

His other offences include driving an off-peak car without a supplementary licence and without a valid driving licence and insurance coverage in July 2007. A month later, he was nabbed parking illegally and driving without a licence again.

The former Tampines Rovers captain was charged this time round after he was caught driving along Lentor Avenue without due care and collided with another car on the morning of November 14.

Both vehicles were extensively damaged and the driver of the other car suffered bodily abrasions and cuts.

A traffic police officer conducted a breathalyser test on Aliff after noticing that he reeked of alcohol.

Aliff failed the breathalyser test and was placed under arrest for drink driving.

Further investigations also revealed that Aliff drove the car despite not having a driver's license.

He also drove the car without the permission of the owner and did not have valid insurance coverage.
