The woman who is alleged to have threatened Radio 2 presenter Jeremy Vine as he cycled in front of her car has been charged with a string of motoring offences, including using threatening, abusive or insulting words.
Shanique Syrena Pearson, 22 of Vauxhall, was filmed by Vine’s on-bike camera, with the video appearing to show her attempting to overtake him as he cycled down a narrow road Kensington High Street with cars parked on either side.
When she sounds her horn, Vine stops and Ms Pearson gets out of her car to confront him. In there blaze of swearing directed at the rider, there are shouts of “get the f*** out of the road” and Vine’s bike is apparently kicked.
Vine handed the video to the police, who arrested Ms Pearson on September 2. On October 11 it was announced that she will face charges at Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court on November 8, according to the Evening Standard.
Ms Pearson is charged with driving without reasonable consideration to other road users, failing to licence a vehicle and using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour.
She was bailed to appear before court on November 8.
