Driver training – Clark Style

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

First it was Helen and Jim racing to see some rugby (didn’t notice the heroic job of speeding driving), then it was Rob (didn’t know the speed limit had changed) and now it is one of Helen’s protection officers involved in drunken hooning around the streets of Auckland.

One of Helen Clark’s police bodyguards was in the passenger seat of a Porsche that careered around a posh Auckland suburb with a drunk policeman at the wheel.

The mid-afternoon spin in the Porsche Boxter through Remuera was so fast that pursuing police pulled out of the chase leaving the Eagle helicopter to track the car.

The car reached speeds of at least 100km/h in 50km/h zones during the bizarre incident last Monday.

The driver was stood down from his duties and has since appeared in court, pleading guilty to drink-driving, reckless driving and failing to stop.

The actions of the diplomatic protection officer who went along for the ride are now under scrutiny.
