Sent down! The moron who filmed himself at 189mph
High speed blast on a stolen Yamaha R1, filmed on an iPhone then saved to a computer = time in prison.
It’s believed to be the fastest EVER speed by which a motorcyclist has been convicted in this country – the phone footage shows Adam Campion getting pretty close to the double tonne on a stolen bike.
Without bothering his brain cells too much, the scrote, riding someone else’s pride and joy, then took the footage and uploaded it to a laptop, which police found when they executed a warrant on his home in September 2016.
As a result of the huge speed on a public road and other offences filmed by others which showed Campion, 26, of Hucknall, Notts, wheelieing on public roads, the bumbling idiot was jailed for 21 months at Nottingham Crown Court on Wednesday after admitting five counts of dangerous driving. He also pleaded guilty to assisting an offender with the retention of stolen goods.
The court was told how Campion’s laptop was seized, which contained hundreds of videos and images of motorcycles being ridden recklessly.
Detectives used forensic facial recognition which identified Campion as the rider – despite him wearing a crash helmet at times.
In one of the most damning videos, Campion can be seen riding the bike one handed while holding his mobile phone in his left hand and taking the Yamaha R1 to an indicated 189mph.
Notts Police Inspector Glenn Longden said: “The illegal and dangerous use of motorcycles is a massive issue to our communities and although this investigation was immensely complex and time consuming, the result in court has been satisfying.”
