A female driver who was filmed during an aggressive encounter with BBC Radio presenter Jeremy Vine has now been charged over the incident.
The alleged road rage incident, which occurred on august 26th as Mr Vine was cycling home, was filmed on Jeremy’s helmet camera and shows 22 year old Shanique Syrena Pearson becoming irate at being stuck behind a cyclist. The road was narrow and had cars parked on both sides which prevented Pearson from over taking.
During the altercation the radio 2 presenter stops to explain that he couldn’t move over because he had to keep “a cars width” away from the parked vehicles to avoid being hit by any door that may open. Ms Pearson gets out of her car and begins to shout and swear at him to get out of her way.
Shanique will appear before magistrates next month charged with using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour as well as driving without reasonable consideration to other road users and failing to licence a vehicle.
