Ryan Parry, 32, of The Highway, New Inn, Pontypool, was sent to prison for 16 weeks after pleaded guilty.

Newport Magistrates’ Court heard the defendant had a “disgraceful driving record” and his offence on April 18 in a Mitsubishi L200 was “aggravated by his previous offending”.

Parry was banned from driving for 49 months.


He was also ordered to pay £213 in a surcharge and costs.

The defendant was told he would have been locked up for 26 weeks if he had not admitted the offence.
