A MOTORIST who allegedly tried to escape police by driving the wrong way down a one-way road has been charged with possession of drugs and a weapon.

At around 12:40pm on Monday (September 11), police reportedly tried to stop a black Audi in Lawford Road.

The driver reportedly sped towards the junction at the end of Lawford Road, where he allegedly made a blind right turn onto a one-way road, passing several other vehicles.

Driving against the flow of traffic, the Audi then allegedly collided with an oncoming vehicle, and the driver was subsequently arrested.




A bag of white powder was recovered at the site of arrest, along with a mobile phone.

A black baseball bat was also reported to have been recovered from the Audi’s back seat.


Osirus Jones, 20, of Holbrook Road has been charged with dangerous driving, driving otherwise than in accordance with a license, using a motor vehicle on a public road without third party insurance, possession of an offensive weapon, and possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

He will appear in Warwick Crown Court on October 12.
