“You are old enough to know better" - Recorder Jason Dunn-Shaw
The prosecutor said one of the men was found hiding in a pub garden, police dogs then trapped a second and Wright was caught as he stood near the side of a house.
Wright, of Hirst Road, Dover, pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice, driving while disqualified, driving dangerously, refusing to stop after an accident and possessing cannabis. He also admitted having no insurance.
Charles Evans, defending, said: “He has to realise that cars are there to be respected, not toys to be played with.”
The judge, Recorder Jason Dunn-Shaw gave him a 12 month jail sentence
suspended for 18 months and banned him from driving for two years.
He told him: “You are old enough to know better."
