A banned driver crashed into a wall and sped off from police down alleyways while riding an off-road bike.
Motor menace David Morrison, who has an appalling record for bad driving, wasn't wearing a crash helmet when he decided to take the bike around streets in Bedlington, Northumberland.
However, the 32-year-old quickly rode off at speed when he realised he'd been spotted by officers and travelled along Rothesay Terrace and Terrier Close and adjoining alleyways.
A court heard that Morrison, who has since been given a prison sentence for dangerous driving after he tried to ram police cars, refused to stop, despite crashing into a wall.
He did manage to flee the scene but was later arrested at his home address in Stokers Buildings, in Bedlington.
Morrison appeared at North Tyneside Magistrates' Court via video link from HMP Durham on Tuesday, where he pleaded guilty to careless driving, driving with no insurance, riding a bike without a helmet and driving while disqualified.
