AN UNINSURED motorist who panicked when police tried to stop him became involved in a high-speed chase all the way from L'Aumone to Specsavers in St Andrew's.

Unknown to Daniel Breton, officers wrongly suspected he was involved in a robbery that had just taken place at L'Aumone Surgery.

But Breton, a provisional licence holder, fled because he knew he had no insurance and his passenger was not a qualified driver. He knew nothing of the burglary.

In court, Breton, 25, of no fixed address, admitted having no insurance, no co-driver, failing to stop for police, driving at a dangerous speed, causing £50 of criminal damage to a wall at the police station and failing to comply with bail.

He was sentenced to 90 hours of community service as a direct alternative to three months in prison. He was also disqualified from driving for 18 months and ordered to pay £50 compensation to the Home Department for the damage.
