North Yorkshire Police

THE case of a young County Durham motorist accused of evading police officers and failing to give a breath sample while not holding a licence or insurance has come before the courts.

Jacob Grant Chambers, of Ashton Street, Easington Colliery, was said to be travelling from Borrowby flyover to Leake crossroads at Borrowby, near Thirsk, on February 18 this year when police officers from North Yorkshire Police attempted to stop the Mercedes he was travelling in.

The 22-year-old is accused of resisting arrest from a PC, who was in pursuit of his car – but was eventually brought to a stop.

Chambers' case came before York Magistrates’ Court on Friday, April 22, for charges of resisting arrest, failing to provide a breath specimen, driving without a licence, and driving without insurance.

Chambers, who was not present at the court hearing, was remanded on unconditional bail until May 3, where he will appear at the same court for a plea hearing.
