  1. 'Most disqualified' driver faces jail and motoring ban into 22nd century. End of the road: The smashed police dog van and, inset, John McCabe Date - 30th January 2019 By - Nick Hudson - Police Oracle Three officers cheated death after Britain’s craziest driver sent one flying out of a police dog van window, dragged another down the road and narrowly missed running over a third in a bid to evade capture. Today, as a court was told only “sheer luck” prevented John McCabe being a police killer, the Northumbria force confirmed to Police Oracle the offender now faces being banned from UK roads into the next century. McCabe – without a driving licence and already disqualified until 2098 – is also almost certain to be jailed for his “trail of destruction” in Sunderland last month. The 30-year-old admitted a total of 21 driving offences including causing serious injury by dangerous driving, driving without insurance, and failing to stop after an accident after getting behind the wheel when he appeared at Newcastle Crown Court on Tuesday. He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on March 19. Northumbria Sergeant Alan Keenleyside said: “McCabe put his life and the lives of others in danger by flouting the law and showing a complete disregard to other motorists. “He threatened the livelihoods of other road users and caused a great deal of fear as a result of his irresponsible and erratic driving. “When confronted by police, he attempted to drive off – dragging an officer down the road and almost running over another in a bid to evade capture. “He then caused serious injury by crashing into a police dog van, which resulted in the handler being ejected out of the window upon impact, suffering broken ribs and significant injuries to his eye. “It was sheer luck that nobody was killed as a result of McCabe’s action on that morning and he must now deal with the consequences.” Shortly before 11am on December 30, the force received a report of dangerous driving in the city centre. Officers were deployed after a silver Vauxhall Corsa – driven by McCabe – had collided with another vehicle. However, McCabe escaped and went on to crash the vehicle into a garage in another part of Sunderland. There he was confronted by two officers – one of whom attempted to arrest him. However, McCabe managed to force his way back into the Corsa and reversed – subsequently dragging the officer along the road and almost ploughing into another PC. The mayhem continued as McCabe shot out of a back lane and smashed into a police dog van. The ferocious impact of the collision saw the officer – a dog handler – thrown from the vehicle, suffering three broken ribs and shards of glass in his eye. A police dog and two puppies were inside the van at the time – but were uninjured. McCabe and a female passenger were both taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries after officers managed to free the pair from the wreckage. He was later arrested and subsequently charged with 21 driving offences. Apart from motoring offenders who can be handed lifetime disqualifications for causing death by dangerous driving, McCabe’s ban from driving on UK roads – until 2098 at the moment – is one of the longest recorded. In September 2017, 20-year-old Mohammed Ahsan was considered a “threat to others” and handed what was thought to be the lengthiest single ban by a court. He was disqualified for 80 years until 2097, potentially longer than a ‘lifetime’ ban. View On Police Oracle
  2. Mistreatment of detainee distributed over instant messaging to other members of staff. A lawsuit has been filed against Northumbria Police after CCTV footage of a detainee being manhandled was shared over social media. In January, a member of staff was dismissed without notice for filming CCTV footage of them restraining a detainee using excessive force in a cell at Forth Banks Custody Suite, proceeding to share it via WhatsApp. CCTV recordings from custody were also captured and shared around by another member of staff, who received a six-month verbal warning, and a police officer was handed a written warning following conduct meetings in March. A number of other employees have also been subject to management action. The force has since launched an investigation into potential breaches of the Data Protection Act and four members of the public have been informed – with one lodging a civil claim. Head of Professional Standards at Northumbria Police Det Supt Sav Patsalos, said: “Following misconduct meetings, a police staff member was dismissed, another received a verbal warning and an officer was issued with a written warning. “All cases were dealt with swiftly and robustly, highlighting our commitment to ensuring everyone employed by the force meets the high standards expected of them. “I would also like to reassure the public that we have taken positive measures to reinforce the responsibilities of all officers and staff around Data Protection laws.” View On Police Oracle
