Katie Price calls her 2-year driving ban 'obscene', says she was hauled up by nosey officers
Katie Price has called her two-year driving ban 'b*******' and 'obscene' only days after she was charged with withholding the identity of the driver in a car collision that her Range Rover was involved in last November.
As per a video that was shared on her YouTube account, the 41-year-old slammed the police and claimed that officers 'pull me over to be nosey' post her fourth ban. The former model believes that her recent conviction is due to 'paperwork' while revealing that she will appeal against the charge.
She gave her social media followers a bit of context about her ban and explained, "I’ve been banned now four times from driving, but it’s actually not me driving but paperwork. I was in court yesterday and the lawyers said to the court that I would not be there as I’d be out the country. We proved we’d be out the country, but the judge wasn’t interested in adjourning it."
The 'I am a Celeb' star also shared that her ability to drive is extremely vital given her location, her son Harvey, 17, and his needs, and her terminally ill mother. She revealed, "I live in the middle of nowhere, I have a son with disabilities that might need to be rushed to hospital at certain times. My mum is terminally ill and I need to visit my mum. If they're banning me for two years how do I know my mum is going to be here in two years' time? I need to be able to get to my mum."
She also added that it was obscene that the courts would not listen to her given she was banned three times before. Price had not attended the sentencing hearing which had taken place on October 10 at the Bexley Magistrates Court and had claimed that she was landing at the London Gatwick airport the same morning.
"We proved that we'd be out of the country, but the judge wasn't even interested in adjourning it. Why? Because I believe they've got it in for me," she added. This is the 6th time that Price has been banned from driving.
