A man who deliberately drove his quad bike at a family, including a 4-year-old girl, in Doncaster has been sent to prison.
Jordan Fisher ,28, of South Street shouted abuse at a woman who had started filming him on her phone. He then drove into her 67 year old husband and their granddaughter as they were out walking. The man and the little girl suffered leg and facial injuries in the incident which happened on Tuesday 5 May at Selby Road in Askern.
Fisher was arrested after an operation by police officers at houses in Highfield and Adwick. He was charged and pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and two counts of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm with intent.
Roads Policing Sergeant Matt Duffy explains how off-road bikers will not be tolerated across South Yorkshire.
Fisher’s act was deliberate, foolish and could have resulted in serious injuries. Behaviour that poses a risk to our communities will not be tolerated and we will always seek to take action against those involved. We are working hard to tackle those who use off-road bikes in a dangerous and anti-social manner.
Fisher appeared before Sheffield Crown Court last week (Friday 24 July) and was sentenced to two years in prison and was disqualified from driving.
