A woman who used a car as a ‘weapon’ and drove through a town centre with a man clinging to her bonnet has been jailed for four years and three months.
Suzanne Gilchrist, 37, previously pled guilty to assault to injury and danger of life.
Stirling Sheriff Court heard she drove through Falkirk town centre on June 12 last year with Stuart Morris, 22, clinging for his life to the bonnet of her car.
Les Brown, procurator fiscal for Stirling, said: "As she drove through Falkirk city centre, with her victim clinging for his life to the bonnet of her car, Suzanne Gilchrist chose to drive at speed and from side to side in an attempt to throw him from the vehicle.
“She used her car as a weapon, and her driving could have led to his death. Such needless endangerment of life is taken extremely seriously by the prosecution service, and she has rightly been brought to face the full force of the law."
Images of the incident were caught by CCTV in the town.
Gilchrist was sentenced on Wednesday at the city's sheriff court.
