Details of how Menace sentenced for dangerous driving stunt near gas station pumps

A British thrill seeker has been arrested after being caught driving dangerously close to gas pumps in England.

Dominic Manley pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and was sentenced to a year in prison for driving erratically and at an excessive speed around a gas station in St. Albans, about 25 miles northwest of London.

Security footage released on Thursday shows five men standing around the Shell station, watching the white BMW drift in and out of the gas station stalls.

According to local police, Manley was also seen at a car meet on a road near the gas station prior to the January stunt.

“Manley was filmed doing doughnuts and driving on the petrol station forecourt narrowly missing the pumps,” Police Chief Clare Lapenna said. “He was traveling at excessive speed and put other road users at risk that day. Fortunately, no one was injured but it could have been a different story.”

Manley’s sentence also includes the suspension of his license for 24 months along with 240 hours of unpaid work and a thinking skills class.

 

The St. Albans East neighborhood had filed numerous complaints regarding car meets, according to the Hertfordshire Constabulary.

“We are committed to preventing collisions occurring and making sure other road users are not put at risk by dangerous, thoughtless drivers said regarding the numerous complaints. “We will continue to monitor the area during our routine patrols and bring anyone offending before the courts.”
