Far out Friday: Uninsured driver hides in manure to escape police

Far out Friday: Uninsured driver hides in manure to escape police An uninsured drink-driver hid in a pile of manure to escape police officers after failing to stop when they signalled at him.

Officers initially used their police car lights to signal to 22-year-old Briton Jake Hart to stop because his brake lights were not working.

However, Hart refused and sped away, travelling at 90mph through a residential area in Staffordshire, mounting pavements and travelling so fast over speed bumps that the car left the ground as it did, according to The Sentinel.

After being chased separately by two police cars and colliding with a parked car, Hart, who was almost three times over the 35 millilitres of alcohol in breath limit, and his passenger abandoned the vehicle. Hart was found hiding in a pile of manure in a park.

In a police interview, Hart said he tried to escape because he had just paid for the car and knew the police would seize it.

He pleaded guilty to drink driving, dangerous driving, no insurance and driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence.

He was sentenced to six months in jail and banned from roads for a year for the incident in April. He must take an extended test before he can drive again.
