Steals car because of sore feet, runs from crash scene

Sadly a lot of the stories I’ve posted about dimwits have come from Southland, but some clowns just need their nose rubbed in it. Take the following expert in jackassery:

A teenager who stole a vehicle because his feet were sore, crashed it into another vehicle the next day.

Nicholas Folster, 18, appeared before Judge Raoul Neave in the Invercargill District Court yesterday and admitted two charges of driving recklessly causing injury, stealing a vehicle and failing to stop after an accident on December 30.

He was remanded on bail to March 22 for sentence.

Prosecutor Penny Stratford said Folster stole an unlocked car while walking on Winton-Wreys Bush Highway.

He drove it to Te Anau and the next morning to Invercargill. While in Tweed St he put the car into a low gear, causing smoke to come off the tyres and the car to fishtail, she said.

The car continued fishtailing for about 1 kilometre before Folster lost control, crossed the centre line, collided with another vehicle with two people in it and continued into a fence, Ms Stratford said.

Folster ran from the scene.

Both people in the other car were taken to hospital. One suffered bruising on her stomach and chest and a sore left foot and the other suffered a sore neck and leg, she said.

When spoken to by police, Folster admitted stealing the car and said he did it because he had sore feet. He also said he ran from the scene because the passenger of the other vehicle was angry, she said.

Glad his Farrar hurty heel-itis sore feet cleared up enough to run from the scene of the crime.

There’s an easy way to deal with scumbags leaving the scene of an accident on foot though:

    What kind of fucked up reporting is this?

    A car fishtailed for a kilometre?

    No – the car was forced to fishtail for a kilometre by its negligent/careless/lawbreaking driver.

    No car fishtails for a kilometre without it being forced to do so. Folster lost control of himself a long time before he lost control of the car.

    Judge Raoul Neave? Now where have we heard that name before? Could be an interesting sentence.

    • Gazzaw

      Of course………..Guy Hallwright. So has Neave been despatched to the deep south from Auckland to get him out of the way?

      • Travis Poulson

        I always thought the judges were on a rotation?

    Judge Raoul Neave,useless softcock crimhugger, will probably sentence this useless shitbag to 6months enforced playstation gaming at home, at our expense.
    When ,no doubt he will abscond ,steal a another car and kill someone. You read it here first.
    I think Neave was the cretin that gave the child molester that escaped to Australia bail.

    The prick really needs the snot beaten out of him, if my famliy was in the car he hit I would have his fucking number and he would expect a visit on a dark night and it wouldn’t be for a cup of tea.

    Strap him to the front of a car in a Demolition Derby – Judge and crim.

    Just too harsh, look at the reasons behind this-

    1. Came from a broken home
    2.Beaten as a child
    3. Parents were alcoholics/druggies
    4. Victimised throughout school
    5. Brown or lived next-door to some.
    6. Had his playstation stolen

    Probably the same list of reasons for the offender as well.

    I’ve said it before. A wound-up German Shepherd is a fearsome thing indeed to have attached to your leg.

      I discovered that at the age of 4.

    A judge in Invercargill once asked the Cop if he had – or had not heard the prisoner screaming when the dog was on him….. the Cop replied… “They all scream when the dogs on ’em Sir….”

    A tip if you’re ever being chased by a police dog. Whatever you do, don’t run over a see-saw, climb over a 6 foot wall or jump through a burning hula-hoop. They’re trained for that.
