Banned driver said he had ‘chanced it’ to go and fill motorbike with fuel

A MAN who used a motorbike whilst he was disqualified from driving said he had “chanced it” to go to get fuel ahead of selling it.

Michael McAuley (28), of Beachlands, Carnlough, was detected on September 3 last year.

Defence barrister Ben Thompson said the defendant has now made “significant strides forward in his life” and had started cycling during the pandemic which helped his mental health.

At Ballymena Magistrates Court, for driving offences, sentencing was deferred until next April to see if the defendant could stay out of trouble.
