A TEENAGE JOYRIDER who mounted a pavement in a stolen motorcycle, nearly colliding with a pram was warned by a judge that he could be facing jail.
Basildon magistrates youth court saw the police video of the hour long chase involving several police cars, officers on foot and the Essex police helicopter that took place on the 17th October last year in Tilbury.
The sixteen-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving, driving without a helmet, taking a vehicle without permission and no insurance.
The court looked on in shock as the youth raced through the streets of Tilbury. The voices of the officers in the helicopter could be heard and they clearly shocked when the youth, at speed, mounted the pavement and skimmed past a young mother who was pushing a pram.
District judge, John Woollard disqualified the teen from drivers but called for pre-sentence reports. However he warned the teen that he could be facing jail.
Case was adjourned until January 31st.
