Latest news in Yorkshire: November 18, 2017 09:20:54 AM

Adam Phipps, 27, of Lyncroft Close at Brinsworth, was stopped on Hollowgate in Rotherham town centre at 1.55am on Saturday, 16 January 2016, by police who suspected him of driving under the influence of drink.

The doorman sped away in his white Mercedes E220 and negotiated a roundabout anti-clockwise, before officers apprehended him for a second time after he collided with an Audi A4 on Woodlands, Rotherham.

He appeared at Sheffield Crown Court yesterday, when he pleaded guilty to charges of dangerous driving, driving whilst unfit though drink or drugs and threatening behaviour.

Phipps was disqualified from driving for 15 months, ordered to take a re-test, told to carry out 200 hours community service and sentenced to 12 months in prison, suspended for two years.

Phipps was also fined £200. Arresting officer PC Luke Bugdol said: “It is rewarding to have brought this serious case before the court, as the consequences of Phipps’ irresponsible actions may have had dire consequences.

Thankfully the incident took place in the very early hours of the morning and there was little other traffic on the roads.”
