A motorist allegedly involved in a road rage incident with BBC radio presenter Jeremy Vine has been charged with multiple motoring offences.
Shanique Syrena Pearson, 22, will appear in court next month after Radio 2 and Crimewatch presenter Vine passed a video of an apparent altercation in Kensington on August 26, to police.
The footage, which the 51-year-old also uploaded to Facebook, showed a woman sounding the horn of her car at Vine, before getting out of her vehicle to confront him.
The incident was recorded by Jeremy Vine’s helmet camera during his commute to work.
The BBC presenter regularly cycles from his home in Chiswick to the BBC’s new broadcasting house near Oxford Circus.
Earlier this week Vine posted another video online showing a near miss he had with a driver while cycling in London, saying the motorist is the “driver I fear” while cycling.
Pearson, a student, of Vauxhall, was charged on Tuesday with driving without reasonable consideration to other road users, failing to licence a vehicle and using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, the Evening Standard reported.
She has been bailed to appear at Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court on November 8.
