Teen banned six months for reckless driving

A teenager who overtook a police car and ran a red light has been banned from the roads for six months.

Magistrates' Court heard that Jagai Bailey, 17, overtook the patrol car and two other vehicles on a motorbike in Court Street, Hamilton, before he jumped a red light and turned on to Dundonald Street.

The officers in the car said Bailey made no attempt to slow down before he made the turn.

Bailey, from Sandys, was pulled over and told police that he was in a rush to get to the Fairmont Southampton for a party. The incident happened on March 2.

Magistrate Maxanne Anderson also fined Bailey $750 and refused the defendant's request for extra time to pay the fine.
