The SV Zolt Wargem midfielder drove to another vehicle parked in the parking lot of an apartment building in Wargem in the summer of 2020. Instead of stopping and declaring himself, he drove away. So he had to report to the police court for the hit-and-run.
According to his lawyer, the player had no ill intentions, on the contrary. “He got away by car because he wanted to be on time for football training and had an appointment with the club’s doctor,” Sick’s lawyer said.
After training in football, he returned to the crash site and searched for the owner of the car through the nearby temporary employment office, to no avail. When the police finally sought out the footballer himself, the latter immediately admitted the facts. The judge ruled that “remaining in place is a form of basic courtesy” and found the thirty-year-old guilty of hit-and-run. He will be banned from driving for 15 days and will have to pay a fine of 800 euros.
