Subject: Katie Price

Written By: Philip Eno on 09/28/10 at 1:22 pm

Glamour model Katie Price has been found guilty of not being in proper control of her pink horsebox after veering into another lane in Sussex.

Mid Sussex magistrates were told two vehicles had to take evasive action when her vehicle drifted on the A23 in Bolney on 19 February, as she texted.

She was fined £1,000, and ordered to pay a £15 surcharge and costs of £650.

Price, who denied the charge, said the horsebox drifted into another lane because she was a "woman driver".

Magistrates also ordered three points to be added to her licence after she was convicted of not being in proper control of a vehicle.

Patrol car officers said they saw her on the phone for up to three seconds.

But Price said there was no reason for her to use her phone because the horsebox was equipped with hands-free bluetooth equipment.

When she was asked why she veered, she told the court: "Because I'm a typical woman driver.

"I'm just not used to a lorry that big. I was probably a bit scared because it was on a motorway.

"I don't remember veering but it is quite difficult."

Chairwoman of the bench Valerie Bender said: "We have considered the evidence in the offence and the relevant issue in this case is: was the driver distracted from driving with proper control by holding something in her hand?

"Our findings on the disputed issues are visual evidence from the DVD showing the horsebox to cross from lane one to lane two.

"Both officers gave evidence that they saw Miss Price holding a mobile phone in her right hand whilst driving.

She added: "We found the police officers to be credible witnesses.

"We are satisfied that the prosecution have proved the charge of driving whilst not in a position to have proper control beyond reasonable doubt."

...just saw a guest viewing this which reminded of the news today.

Katie Price has been declared bankrupt in a hearing at the High Court, which was told she had failed to stick to a plan to repay her debts. The former model and reality TV star was not present at the London hearing. Last year, Price, 41, came to an arrangement with her creditors for a repayment plan known as an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA). But the insolvency practitioner overseeing her IVA said she had failed to keep to the terms of the agreement. Now that she's been made bankrupt, the Official Receiver will take control of her financial affairs and property. Price, who lives in West Sussex, found fame in the 1990s as a glamour model under the name Jordan and was once said to be worth more than £40m.
