Katie Price given suspended jail sentence for drink-driving

The former model Katie Price has received a 16-week suspended jail sentence and been banned from driving for two years after she admitted drink-driving while disqualified and without insurance after a crash near her home in Sussex.

The district judge Amanda Kelly described Price’s behaviour as “incredibly selfish” and said she was lucky to not be going to prison. Kelly said she showed “no concern for the lives of others” and she “could have easily killed somebody”.
