Bharat Keshwala, aged 48 did what I am sure most computer game users only fantasies about, when he went on a high-speed police chase, hitting high speeds and jumping lights all whilst the police pursued him. The only problem was it was through the busy streets of Manchester and it was for real.
Keshwala was spotted driving at speeds of 90mph, jumping red lights and not being in control of his car in the early hours of the morning last December. Police pursued him and finally ended the chase near Liverpool.
He was later sentenced to 80 hours of unpaid work and will be required to sit an extended driving test. When asked why he had behaved like this he claimed that he was in a dream like state and thought he was in a computer game.
Keshwala is a recovering alcoholic and was thought to be suffering from insomnia, having not slept properly for the past month.
