A DANGEROUS driver has been given ‘one more chance’ by a judge after failing to attend his unpaid work sessions.

Kai Wheeler was a leaner driver who was living in his Audi TT when he sped away from police on May 20 last year.

The 22-year-old sped through traffic in Oxford, evading police, before eventually handing himself into Witney Police Station three days later.

His sports car was found crashed into a ditch and had uprooted an electricity pylon.

He was handed a 12-month prison sentence, suspended for 18 months, and ordered to complete 30 rehabilitation activity days, six months of mental health treatment and 150 hours of unpaid work.

However, he appeared at Oxford Crown Court on Monday (March 4) after missing four unpaid work sessions.

The probation officer said Wheeler had missed the sessions due to being place in emergency accommodation as well as suffering from anxiety and PTSD.

Judge Michael Gledhill said: “I suffer from anxiety and PTSD in some form but I still get here on time even when the A40 is completely blocked.”

However, he decided to give Wheeler ‘one chance’ to comply with the order instead of activating his suspended sentence.

He said: “If you attend every appointment that you’re given then I won’t send you to prison.”

Wheeler, of no fixed abode, is due back in court on April 8.
