Darrell Gough, 23, is lucky to be alive after he crashed into the House of Culture fence on Regent Street on Monday, March 7. That is where the luck ends; however, as he is now in trouble with the law for riding extremely dirty. According to police, Gough was driving a car without insurance and he has no driver’s license.

Allegations are that on Monday, March 7, police were conducting mobile patrol in the city when their attention was drawn to a vehicle which was seen crashed into the fence of the House of Culture. They then saw a male person exiting the vehicle and holding his abdomen as if in pain. They approached the man and asked him his name and that is when he identified himself as Darrell Gough, the driver of the crashed vehicle. Gough was later asked to produce his driver’s license but was unable to do so. He told the authorities that he has no driver’s license. Police detained him and escorted him to Precinct 1 Police station located on Euphrates Avenue after they discovered that the vehicle was not insured.

Gough was unrepresented when he appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser on Tuesday, May 8. He was read charges of driving a motor vehicle without being the holder of Belize driver’s license, driving a motor vehicle without third party risk insurance and driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention. Gough pleaded guilty to all three charges. When asked why he was behind the wheels without having a driver’s license, Gough said that he was taking home a young lady as a favour for a female friend. Senior Magistrate Fraser fined him $100 for driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention; $150 for driving a motor vehicle without third party risk insurance and $75 for driving a motor vehicle without a Belize drivers license. She gave him until April 30, 2016 to pay all the fines.
