VIDEO: Twenty-year ban for speeding Aussie biker

Australian Government come down hard on drugged-up law breaker

AN AUSSIE MOTORCYCLIST captured on video at more than 200km/h (125mph) in heavy traffic has been jailed for at least one year and banned from driving for a further TWENTY.

Craig Douglas Thompson, 37, was riding a stolen motorcycle and under the influence of drugs when his antics were captured by a police helicopter.

Police released the video today - along with a lengthy statement explaining why and describing the incident.

During the footage Thompson is seen weaving through heavy traffic, crossing to the wrong side of the road, riding in the breakdown lane and driving through a number of red traffic lights on numerous occasions narrowly missing cars. At one stage he is even seen riding into the driveway of a property, where he falls off but before a police officer is able to catch him he manages to remount the bike and take off again despite a foot peg breaking off the machine.
