Eating doughnuts may be bad for your waistline, but spinning donuts in your Corvette can be even worse for your wallet.
That’s what a 25-year-old man found out last week after he was handed down his sentence for doing donuts in his red Corvette as he left an A&W restaurant parking lot in St. John’s, New Brunswick, Canada on May 21, 2015.
Judge Colin Flynn ordered Wilson Barrett, who owns a roofing company, to pay a $1,000 fine, plus a $50 traffic fine for having dealer plates on the car and a $300 victim surcharge.
The worst part about the sentence, though, is that Barrett can’t drive until 2018.
Unfortunately for Barrett, his dangerous driving in his Corvette in the middle of a busy St. John’s street was captured on video and went viral on social media.
At first, no one knew who the mystery driver was, but police didn’t give up, conducting several interviews with witnesses and checking out several video sources to find out Barrett was the man behind the donuts.
“One would think a 25-year-old who owned his own businesses wouldn’t (do such a thing),” Judge Flynn said of Barrett.
