Idiot British Driver Who Called Judge "An Absolute Helmet" For Jailing Him Faces Longer Sentence
A man jailed for dangerous driving foolishly called the judge an "absolute helmet" and sarcastically thanked him after he was jailed for 14 months - as a result of his response, he could now be facing a longer sentence.
25-year-old Levi Cull pleaded guilty to a string of offences after crashing a Mercedes in Bolton. During a hearing at Bolton Crown Court on Tuesday, Cull was sentenced to 14 months in prison.
Harriet Lavin, prosecuting, told the court that Cull was seen by a police officer on March 21, at around 2.30pm. The defendant "attempted to duck his head" before turning away from police down a side street.
A short car chase then ensued, Cull was driving on the wrong side of the road at 60mph, ran a red light, and sped across a busy junction without stopping.
He then crashed on Gibbon Street, sending another vehicle into a parked car. The Mercedes that Cull was driving then hit a fence, struck another car, flipped, and landed on its roof.
Levi Cull, who has 10 convictions for 26 other offences, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving, driving without a licence, and driving without insurance.
Nick Ross, defending, said: "The defendant has recognised that he has a lot of growing up to do. He holds his hands up."
Mr Ross added that although the crash was "dramatic" there were no "serious injuries" to anyone and the vehicle was not stolen.
The Honorary Recorder of Bolton Judge Martin Walsh sentenced Cull to 14 months in prison and banned him from driving for three years.
After hearing the sentence, Cull, who appeared in court via a video link, said: "Thank you very much you absolute helmet. In a bit mate."
Immediately after the comments, Judge Walsh indicated that Cull will be brought back before Bolton Crown Court for contempt of court, meaning he could have his sentence extended.
