A MAN who terrorised a couple while riding a quad bike has been handed a suspended prison sentence and restraining order.
Simon Hall, 27, admitted to dangerous driving and was sentenced to six months in prison, suspended for 12 months, at Sheffield Crown Court last Friday.
He was also banned from driving for 18 months, ordered to complete 100 hours of unpaid work and ten rehabilitation activity requirement days, and issued a 12-month restraining order.
Hall, of Lancaster Street, Thurnscoe, was said to have rammed the couple’s car several times with the quad bike in an altercation on nearby Windsor Street on July 8.
A South Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “We completely understand just how problematic, and dangerous, off-road bikers have been in Barnsley but residents can be assured that we are taking this very seriously given just how many complaints we receive.”
