This is a good reward for trying to unnecessary show off riches…This is really funny but then, what else did we expect?
Ghanaian footballer John Paintsil is reported to have gotten into ‘hot waters’ in Kumasi yesterday after his attempt to show off his riches back fired.
John Paintsil embarrassed himself when he was unable to start his own Hummer, leading to the car auto locking itself.
The report below filed by I.F. Joe Awuah Jnr. from Kumasi explains what happened…
The player was in the car, registered JP 4-09, with his male friend in the passenger seat and two gorgeous ladies at the back. Paintsil tried starting the engine of the car, but he somewhat got some figures wrong, resulting in the complex car’s engine being jammed.
The embarrassing incident occurred right in front of Melcom Stores at Adum, the commercial nerve center of Kumasi at 1:00pm. Hundreds of people that were trading at the area left their products and rushed to the scene to catch a glimpse of the ‘disaster’ that had befallen the national star.
The huge crowd at the scene caused vehicular traffic which affected business in the city on the day. Paintsil was among the football stars and musicians that had stormed Kumasi the previous day to play a charity game at the Baba Yara stadium.
The soccer stars and musicians had visited the Melcom Stores at Adum as part of activities marking the charity game. Sources at the scene told DAILY GUIDE SPORTS that they saw a different person driving the car when the stars arrived.
According to them, when news got round town that the stars had visited the area, several people quickly besieged the place to see them.
An eye witness said perhaps the player wanted to show off, hence his decision to drive the car this time around. However, Paintsil, who was evidently uncomfortable behind the wheels, committed a blunder and got the car locked up.
