Speeding charge against Katie Price dismissed in court

·1 min read

Two charges against Katie Price, including one of speeding, have been dismissed.

The two charges were dismissed as "no evidence was offered" at a case management hearing at Crawley Magistrates' Court on Monday.

The 44-year-old former glamour model had been charged with one count of exceeding the 60mph speed limit on 13 September 2021, and one count of failing to provide information on 26 January this year. Price did not attend court.

Monday's hearing had previously been listed to take place on Tuesday but was brought forward.

Last September, she was handed a suspended sentence after crashing her BMW on the B2135 near Partridge Green in West Sussex.

She was given a 16-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, with 100 hours of unpaid work and 20 rehabilitation activity requirement sessions to be completed within the next 12 months.

She was also disqualified from driving for two years and ordered to pay £85 costs.
