Katie Price swerves speeding conviction as police DROP case on day she was due in court


KATIE Price has swerved another speeding conviction.

The former glamour model was charged with exceeding the 60mph limit on September 13 last year – but police dropped the case just hours before she was due in court today.

Katie Price was also accused of failing to tell police who has behind the wheel of her £62,000 BMW on January 26, but this was also dismissed as “no evidence was offered”.

The 44-year-old, who has almost 20 previous driving convictions, was banned from driving at the time of the alleged offence.

Just two weeks later she flipped her flash motor in a drink-drive crash near her mucky mansion in Horsham, West Sussex.

The reality star pleaded guilty but avoided jail after claiming she had been in a rush to visit a pal because she was “lonely”.

She instead landed a 16-week prison sentence suspended for one year, 100 hours of unpaid work and 20 mandatory rehab sessions.

Katie Price was also disqualified from driving for two years and ordered to pay 85 costs.

A judge told her at the time: “You have one of the worst driving records I have ever seen.”

Price had been due at Crawley Magistrates’ Court later today after a previous hearing was adjourned on March 24.

But Sussex Police this morning dismissed the case and confirmed she would not be appearing.

It was unclear whether she would have been there in person after jetting off to Thailand late last month.

The mum and her partner Carl Woods boarded a flight hours after learning she would not be caged for sending a “vile and nasty” message to her ex’s fiancée.

Price breached a restraining order by calling Kieran Hayler’s partner Michelle Penticost a “gutter s**g”.

She admitted the charge at Lewes Crown Court in a major U-turn after previously denying it – but dodged jail.

The TV personality, who smiled as she left the dock, faced a maximum of five years behind bars but was instead handed an 18-month community order, 170 hours unpaid work and £1,500 costs.

The Sun revealed Price had booked her South East Asian getaway BEFORE learning her fate.

Since arriving, the couple have posted racy photos on their OnlyFans account, including sexy sunbathing snaps and an X-rated image from their hotel.

But they run the risk of breaching the strict anti-pornography laws in Thailand, where publishing “obscene” content is punishable by up to five years in prison and a 100,000-baht (£2,300) fine – or both.
