The driver of a stolen Ferrari who led police on a wild chase through Nice in the early hours of July 2 has been jailed for three years, with just 12 months suspended.
Police stopped the driver by firing at his tires, a court in Nice was told on Monday, July 31. Having one of the tyres blown out did not prevent the multi-recidivist from ramming a pursuing police car head-on.
“Why do you get into a vehicle, drunk, and without a licence?” asked David Hill, president of the court of corrections in Nice.
Youssef Z., 35, had nine previous convictions and had not held a valid driving licence since 2011.
