A man from Wilmslow who drove home after appearing in court to be disqualified from driving has been jailed.
Ryan Tuckman, of Saltersbrook Grove, had attended Crewe Magistrates Court on Thursday 28 July 2022 and received a 40-month driving ban.
The 29-year-old then left the court in his Honda Acord vehicle and drove towards his home in Wilmslow.
Tuckman was stopped by a police officer on the A34 Melrose Way in Wilmslow.
Following a search of the vehicle a police officer located a cannabis bud in the car.
Tuckman was arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis and driving while disqualified.
He attended Crewe Magistrates Court on Friday 29 July 2022 and was sentenced to eight weeks in prison.
Sergeant Ian Smith, of Cheshire Constabulary’s Roads and Crime Unit, said: “Tuckman knew he had been disqualified from driving yet still drove to court on the day he was due to be banned and brazenly got back into it to drive home.
“He clearly thought that his chances of being stopped by an officer were low and that he would get away with it.
“This should serve as a warning to other motorists who believe that they can get behind the wheel of a vehicle while disqualified because not only is it against the law but officers can be anywhere, at any time meaning you are likely to also be caught.”
