A man who deliberately drove his quad bike at a family in Doncaster has been sentenced to time behind bars.
On Tuesday 5 May, officers were called to Selby Road in Askern following reports that a man had deliberately driven at a family, including a four-year old girl, who were out walking.
The rider of the quad bike, 28 year-old Jordan Fisher, of South Street, Doncaster shouted abuse at a woman, who had started filming Fisher on her phone, before driving into her 67 year-old husband and their four-year old granddaughter. Both the man and the little girl suffered minor injuries to their legs and face.
Following the incident, officers from Doncaster executed warrants at properties in Highfield and Adwick, supported by the Off Road Motorcycle Team, and as a result of their enquiries Fisher was subsequently arrested, charged and pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and two counts of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm with intent.
Roads Policing Sergeant Matt Duffy explains how off-road bikers will not be tolerated across South Yorkshire, he said:
“Fisher’s act was deliberate, foolish and could have resulted in serious injuries. Behaviour that poses a risk to our communities will not be tolerated and we will always seek to take action against those involved.
“We are working hard to tackle those who use off-road bikes in a dangerous and anti-social manner. We are stronger with the public’s help and thank you for your on-going efforts in helping us identify those involved.”
Fisher appeared before Sheffield Crown Court last week (Friday 24 July) and was sentenced to two years in prison and was disqualified from driving.
Officers from our off-road bike team have launched an appeals gallery, if you can help identify anyone, please contact 101.
