‘Showing off’ earns further disqualification

One day shy of completing his disqualification, a 21-year-old landed himself with more.

 

Cayden Josh Greaney-Robinson was disqualified in May last year after drink-driving.

 

It would have ended on November 19.

On November 18, Greaney-Robinson picked up an associate and drove around Oamaru.

At the intersection of Taward St and the entrance to Centennial Park he performed a large burn-out.

That was "in an area where there were pedestrians and sports fields," Judge Joanna Maze said in the Oamaru District Court yesterday .

He then drove south towards a police patrol, who locked his speed at 65kmh in a 50kmh zone.

While they activated their flashing lights, Greaney-Robinson accelerated heavily past them.

Opting not to initiate a pursuit, due to his speed and their location, the patrol found his vehicle a short time later parked in a supermarket car park.
