Towing Man in Wheelchair - Video

A Harrogate man has been banned from driving for 20 months after he was caught pulling another man along a road in a wheelchair.

20-year-old Michael Ward, of Walworth Avenue, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving on Cheltenham Parade earlier this year.

At around 12.25am on 28 January, Ward was seen on CCTV talking to 28-year-old William MacPherson outside Moko Lounge on King's Road.

Ward then drove along King's Road as MacPherson, who was in the wheelchair, held onto the back of the car.

When they became detached, Ward stopped and reversed back to MacPherson who took hold of the vehicle again.

They came to a stop on two other occasions up Cheltenham Parade and Cheltenham Crescent, before turning left onto Oxford Street and coming to a stop outside McDonald's.
As well as being banned from driving, Ward was ordered to complete 200 hours of unpaid work, fined £85 costs and also ordered to pay £85 victim's surcharge.

MacPherson, of Link Way, Harrogate, pleaded guilty to holding onto a vehicle for the purpose of being drawn. He was fined £154 and ordered to pay £30 costs and £30 victim's surcharge.
