Katie Price could face another driving ban as she's pulled over and has Range Rover seized by police

Katie Price could face another driving ban as she's pulled over and has Range Rover seized by police

Katie Price was reportedly pulled over by police on Friday, 21 July

Katie Price could face another driving ban after she was reportedly pulled over by police.

The mum-of-five has a history of driving offences after she received a suspended prison sentence for drink driving in 2021.

She was arrested and charged in September of that year for drink driving, following a single-vehicle collision.

According to the prosecution, Price had an alcohol level from a breath test of 66mg - the limit is 35mg.

The collision took place near her Sussex home, on the B2135, near Partridge Green.

District Judge Kelly sentenced her to a 16 weeks prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, alongside 100 hours of unpaid work in community.

At the time, District Judge Kelly said: "When you chose to get behind the wheel that night you showed no concern for others. You could have killed somebody.

"Your actions meant the emergency services had to use up their precious time. You knowingly and deliberately flouted a court order and not for the first time.

"You seem to think you are above the law."

The prosecution added: "There is no evidence Katie Price has been anything but co-operative," when referencing the ongoing proceedings.

Now, the 45-year-old is said to have been pulled over by police and had her vehicle confiscated.

Price was reportedly identified by Sussex locals who recognised her and her silver Range Rover when she was being questioned by officers at a roadside on Friday (21 July).

Sussex Police told LADbible: "Officers responded to a report of a motorist driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence and driving without insurance at Sompting Road roundabout, Worthing, shortly before 6pm on Friday, July 21.

"A 45-year-old woman was spoken to, and a Range Rover was seized under Section 165(a) of the Road Traffic Act.

"Sussex Police is not able to comment further at this time."

Speaking on a TikTok Live last week, Price said: "No insurance company will insure me on a new car or anything flash, nothing.

"The quotes I had for my insurance on a normal car that is £15k was £73k, one was £53k and one was £33k, and they were my quotes because no one else would insure me because of who I am.”

She argued: "It’s discrimination because if someone else had the same as me and they had a normal job, they wouldn’t charge that much, it’s way more than the car."

During an appearance on Where There’s A Will, There’s A Wake podcast, the mum opened up about her fears of one day dying in a car crash.

"I’ve always predicted I'd die in a car crash, I've always said that," Price told host Kathy Burke.

"The amount of near-death experiences and car crashes I've had, in the car. I've always come out without a scratch on me."

LADbible has contacted Katie Price's representatives for comment.
