VIDEO: Audi driver jailed after filming himself driving at 190mph while listening to ‘It Wasn’t Me’ by Shaggy
Shaun Davis, aged 42, was found guilty of four counts of dangerous driving on a number of main roads.
The footage shows Davis driving at more than 190mph while listening to ‘It Wasn’t Me’ by Shaggy and ‘Red Red Wine’ by UB40.
Davis had pleaded not guilty to 12 counts of dangerous driving.
The charges related to a series of driving episodes between 2012 and 2014, in high performance cars, including BMWs and Audis.
The prosecution argued that Davis had filmed himself during these episodes of driving. Davis’ face could not be seen in any of the footage and he claimed that it was not him on the films.
He was found guilty by a jury, of four counts of Dangerous Driving. He was found not guilty on seven counts and a hung jury returned on one count.
The four counts, Davis was found guilty of, saw him driving at speeds of between 150mph – 192mph.
The judge sentenced him to 28 months in prison and gave him a 10 year driving disqualification.
His daughter Jordan Davis, aged 23, was found guilty of inciting or encouraging an offence of Dangerous Driving. She was given a two year driving disqualification and an 18 month conditional discharge.
Det Insp Greg Maides, said: “After examining Shaun Davis’ mobiles phones, we found multiple videos of him driving grossly in excess of the maximum national speed limit, with no regard for the safety of other motorists, pedestrians or himself.
“We are satisfied with the result, and hope that this will serve as a deterrent to him in the future.”
