Lancing motorcyclist admits fleeing Worthing accident with Mercedes

A motorcyclist who claimed his vehicle was stolen after fleeing an accident has been convicted of perverting the law.

18-year-old George Argent admitted to the indictment of perverting the course of justice, driving without insurance, driving without due care and attention and failing to stop at the scene of a traffic accident.

Argent, of Tower Road in Lancing, was charged after he and a passenger left the scene of the accident without leaving details. When police later visited his home, he told officers he was not riding his bike at the time of the accident because it had been stolen.

Despite having an opportunity to tell the truth, Argent continued to deny that he was the driver. Messages were then found on his phone in which he admitted to several people that he had been involved in the crash.

PC Thomas Van Der Wee, of the Sussex Police Roads Policing Unit, said: “Argent has gone to great lengths to avoid prosecution for leaving the scene of an accident.

“That meant we had to verify his claims, organize an identity parade and analyze his cellphones.

“The case demonstrates our determination to catch and prosecute anti-social motorcyclists.

“It also shows that those who try to deceive the police and the courts will be caught and prosecuted.”

Argent was convicted after he was identified at an identity parade by witnesses who saw him flee the scene between his Honda CBR 125 motorcycle and a Mercedes on South Farm Road in Worthing.

Officers who visited his home also saw him with an injury sustained during the crash around 11 p.m. on Feb. 9.

Argent admitted the charges at Lewes Crown Court on November 8.

He was sentenced to a 22-week suspended sentence for the charges. He also has to complete 120 hours of unpaid work and 15 rehabilitation sessions.

Argent was also banned from driving for a year.
