A Trowbridge motorist was involved in a police car chase two days before he was due to be sentenced for dangerous driving, a court heard.
Michal Flisinski, 29, of Charlotte Square, was jailed for five months, on Friday, after pleading guilty, at Swindon Crown Court, to two counts of dangerous driving, having no insurance, driving while disqualified and while unfit through drugs.
Despite being on bail and banned from driving, following an earlier offence, Flisinski was spotted by police driving a bright orange Volkswagen Polo, in Aintree Avenue, on May 1, this year.
He speeded at 60mph, in a 40mph zone, driving into oncoming traffic while overtaking and he was eventually stopped in Trowbridge.
He was found to have 0.9mg of amphetamines per litre of blood.
On May 3, he was given a community order, for dangerous driving, at North West Wiltshire Magistrates Court, in Chippenham, for his earlier offence.
He breached his sentence, on May 30, with Police again chasing him through Trowbridge seizing his car when he was stopped.
Officers found he had a foil lined rucksack which Flisinski admitted he intended to use for shoplifting.
In June, he failed to turn up for a court hearing and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
During Friday’s hearing, Flisinski also guilty pleaded to failing to stop, possessing cannabis and amphetamines, going equipped to steal, failing to surrender to custody and breaching a community order.
As well as receiving a prison sentence, Flisinski, was banned for driving for two years and is required to pass an extended test if he wishes to drive again.
