Scandal-plagued Likud MK Oren Hazan on Tuesday was fined NIS 1,500 ($416) for driving 142 kilometers an hour (88 mph) in southern Israel last December.
Hazan was ordered to pay up by an Eilat court after he was caught traveling 52 kilometers (32 miles) above the speed limit late last year on his way to the Red Sea resort city.
At the time, his license was suspended for 30 days.
Hazan, who entered the Knesset in the last election, has become known as the enfant terrible of Israel’s parliament.
Shortly after he entered politics, a Channel 2 expose alleged that Hazan had previously run a casino in Bulgaria where hard drugs and prostitution were allowed. He sued the station’s journalist Amit Segal for libel but the court rejected the bulk of the lawsuit.
In December 2015, the Knesset Ethics Committee also suspended Hazan from participating in parliamentary debates for a month due to a series of complaints against him. In February 2016, Hazan was again suspended from the committee hearings, this time by his own Likud party after he skipped a plenum vote resulting in a loss for the party.
Hazan was also suspected of assaulting a senior official in the municipality of the West Bank town of Ariel in 2014 in an apparent dispute over a debt. After the city froze his bank account, Hazan went to the office, where he cursed and pushed the municipal director, the statement said.
