Jail and fine for rash driver who’s also admitted drug charges

Taken off the road: Razman being led away from the court to jail.

GEORGE TOWN: An odd-job worker, who drove in such a reckless manner that police had to shoot a tyre of the car to make him stop, was jailed 16 months by a magistrate’s court here.

Razman Ahmad, 30, pleaded guilty to reckless and dangerous driving in Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah here at 3.50pm on Oct 12.

Magistrate Catherine Nicholas ordered him to serve his sentence from the date of his arrest on Oct 12.

She also fined Razman RM8,000 in default six months’ jail and suspended his licence for two years.

Prosecuting officer ASP Ahmad Padzli told the court that Razman’s reckless act had damaged a few vehicles and injured several people who needed treatment at the hospital.

He urged the court to impose an appropriate sentence as reckless and dangerous driving was a serious offence.

Razman was unrepresented. At press time yesterday, he had yet to pay the fine.

The same court also fixed Jan 18 to mention another case of Razman, who had pleaded guilty on Oct 16 to having 2.2gm of heroin at the Penang Bridge at 3.50pm on Oct 12.

He had also admitted possessing 0.82gm of methamphetamine at the same place and time.

Unemployed Sharifah Endah Haminuddin, 30, who was jointly charged with Razman with the two counts of drug possession, had denied both charges.

Catherine fixed the cases to be mentioned pending the chemist report.
