Woman arrested for driving stolen mobility scooter in reckless manner

Published

on

Police in Hartlepool came across an unusual incident while on a routine patrol of the town centre.

The Hartlepool Neighbourhood Police team managed to stop a stolen mobility scooter, now we aren’t too sure if a pursuit was given but if there was we are sure the footage would be unreal.

And we are fairly sure those cops responding to the incident won’t hear the end of this one back in the parade room for the next couple of years.

Anyways getting back to the story because this is, after all, a very serious incident, officers have described it as ‘one of the strangest jobs they’ve dealt with’.

Not only had the woman stole the mobility scooter she could not even drive it. Police Say she was spotted driving the Scooter in a reckless manner while under the influence of alcohol.

Cops managed to get their hands on her and lock her up but now they have the job of finding out whos scooter it is.

The cops admitted this was Perhaps one of the strangest jobs officers have dealt with in recent times.
