CHRIS Eubank’s unemployed son is being forced to rely on “family help” to pay for a £254 drug-driving fine.

Joseph Eubank, youngest son of the boxing legend, pleaded guilty after denying he was a danger to other road users.

Magistrates in Brighton banned him from driving for a year.

Dressed in a black designer T-shirt and jeans, Eubank, who represented himself in court, stood in the dock and told magistrates: “On that date I was not a danger to anyone on the road.

“I was not intoxicated, and I did not feel intoxicated.

“But, in black and white, I am guilty.”

The court heard that traffic police tested the 25-year-old for drugs after he looked “quite relaxed” when they pulled him over for a broken light in Middle Street, Brighton, at 10pm on October 25, 2021.

Melanie Wotton, prosecuting, told Brighton magistrates that police did not believe he performed well in impairment tests.

She said: “When he was stopped, it was due to a defective light. However, when he did not perform well in the impairment tests he was arrested.”

A test found he had a reading of 2.8 for cannabis in his blood.

The limit for Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol – the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis – is two.

Eubank, of Hill Drive, Brighton, had pleaded not guilty at an earlier hearing but he later “disengaged” from his defence team, the court heard.

The court had previously warned Eubank that he would have to pay the costs of extra tests and witnesses if he was found guilty of drug driving.


Wotton told the court the crown accepted there was an indication to plead guilty shortly after the first hearing but the case had still managed to progress through the criminal justice system leading to a trial date of June 23.

“The crown accepts that he intended to enter a not guilty plea at an early date,” she said. “All witnesses in this case had been dewarned.”

In trying to decide a financial penalty for the offence, magistrates asked Eubank what he did for a living.

He told them he was intending to start a food truck business but was currently unemployed.

Fining him £135, and ordering him to pay costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £34, Alistair Worsley, chairman of the bench, asked the defendant how he would be able to pay the £254 as he was currently not working.

To which Eubank replied from the dock: “With family help, sir.”

Last year another of Chris Eubank’s sons tragically died of a “massive heart attack” while watching the sunset.

Sebastian was found dead in Dubai in July 2021 just days before his 30th birthday, and a coroner has now reported evidence of a pre-existing heart condition that the boxer was unaware of.

Sebastian – the third oldest of Eubank’s five children – was born in Brighton in East Sussex before moving to UAE around seven years ago.

Following in his dad’s footsteps, Sebastian made his MMA debut in 2020.
