A reckless drink driver has been jailed for 39 months after ramming ten parked cars on Grove Park Road, Chiswick (scroll down for video).
On 5th July 2018 at around 01:10 hours, officers from Hounslow’s Response Team ‘D’ responded to several 999 calls from members of the public in relation to a male who was reported as driving erratically and intentionally crashing into parked cars.
Several response team units made their way to the location, arriving within minutes of the first 999 call being made.
The vehicle in question, a black Jeep, had crashed into around 10 other vehicles on Grove Park Road, Chiswick, causing extensive damage to the vehicles as well as to roadside furniture and property at the location.
The driver of the Jeep, Alex Green, 34 of Southend-on-Sea attempted to flee the scene on foot but was quickly detained by officers.
He was subsequently charged with various driving offences as well as being in possession of a Class ‘A’ drug.
He was bailed to attend Uxbridge Magistrates Court on 24th July 2018.
The post charge investigation was taken on by officers from Response Team D who were contacted the next morning by the owner of the Black JEEP to report it stolen shortly before Green rammed the parked vehicles.
A charge of aggravated vehicle taking was subsequently added by Crown Prosecution Service.
Following an extensive investigation by officers, with support from members of public on Grove Park Road who attended court, Green pled guilty to all offences at Isleworth Crown Court in January 2019.
Green was sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court on 08th March 2019 to 39 months imprisonment and banned from driving for 68 months.
Inspector Peal, Hounslow Response Team D Inspector said,
“This is great investigative work by Hounslow D Team officers to apprehend and charge this suspect for multiple offences.
“It’s brilliant to see such robust sentencing for a crime that had the potential to put many innocent lives at risk.”
