A man led police on two high speed chases within three months throwing away a chance given to him by a judge.
Ryan Askin admitted breaking another clubber’s nose at the Loft club in Xscape, Castleford but had sentence deferred on him in December to see if he could keep out of trouble.
But on April 2 he was spotted at driving by police officers on the A639 road in Rothwell, Leeds and when they tried to follow him he accelerated away.
Katherine Robinson prosecuting told Leeds Crown Court the officers reached 100mph but were not catching Askin.
When they approached a roundabout they realised his car was not braking and it hit the kerb and road signs.
When the officers arrived they found two female passengers emerging shocked and distressed and calling the driver, Askin, an idiot.
The car was extensively damaged, one of the wheels had become dislodged. His passengers said they had asked him to stop but he had ignored them.
Askin was bailed and later was seen driving erratically in Bradford Road, East Ardsley. Police followed him and saw him swerving.
Miss Robinson said they used lights and sirens and when Askin slowed to a crawl believed he was going to stop but he suddenly did a U-turn driving back towards them and scraping his vehicle along the side of the police car.
He turned into a residential area driving over the speed limit and approaching Moor Knoll Lane collided with another vehicle causing it to spin 180 degrees injuring the driver inside and causing £1,000 damage to medical equipment he was due to deliver to St James’s Hospital.
Askin narrowly missed hitting pedestrians, continuing about 100 metres before the damage to his vehicle brought it to a stop. He ran off but was caught.
A breath test showed he had a reading of 87, against the limit of 35.
Craig Sutcliffe representing Askin said he was bitterly ashamed of his conduct and wasting the chance given to him.
Askin, 24 of Carlton Lane, Rothwell, Leeds was jailed for 26 months and disqualified from driving for two years after he admitted two charges of dangerous driving and driving over the limit. He was also sentenced for grievous bodily harm at the club.
