Blundering motorist is branded Britain’s ‘dumbest criminal’ after driving home from court moments after he had been banned from the roads for 12 months
- He was caught driving home to Pwllheli, North Wales, immediately after court
- Police said his vehicle was seized and he was reported for breaking ban
A motorist has been called the ‘dumbest criminal of the week’ for being caught driving home from court moments after being banned from the road.
The criminal, who has not been named, was given a year-long ban after appearing at a Magistrates’ Court in North Wales.
But he was caught behind the wheel of his car immediately after leaving the court on his way home to Pwllheli, North Wales.
Police said his vehicle was seized and he was reported for driving while disqualified with no insurance.

Social media users took to the internet to mock him, with one saying: ‘The award for dumb criminal of the week goes to this guy.’
Another added: ‘It’s like he doesn’t understand what a driving ban means.’
In 2020 a mother was caught driving away from court just minutes after being banned from the road.
Simara Knopka, 39, had just been disqualified for two years and warned she faced jail if she was caught behind the wheel again.
She was then snapped moments later pulling away from Manchester Crown Court in her Peugeot 208.
A North Wales Police spokesman said: ‘He’s thought it was a good idea to drive from court in his car after being disqualified from driving for 12 months.
‘Pwllheli Policing Team have stopped him and he’s been reported for driving whilst disqualified, no insurance, and subsequently the car was seized.’
