A man who did all he could to cheat justice has finally been jailed.
Drunk driver Martin Wiggins was sentenced on the tenth hearing of his case.
This follows a crash on Church Road, Lytham in March 2022 after which Wiggins (53) ditched his black Mercedes AMG and led police on a chase.
Wiggins, of South Clifton Street, Lytham formerly of Edenfield, Lytham was jailed for eight weeks and banned from driving for two and a half years.
He had been found guilty at an earlier hearing of drink driving - he was almost four times the limit-and failed to stop after the crash.
District Judge Richard Thompson sitting at Blackpool Magistrates Court told Wiggins: "There was a crash and you left the crash and police had to chase you.
"When you were arrested you were abusive to and uncoperative with police.
"You pleaded not guilty and have done everything you can to delay and cheat justice."
Suzanne Mugford defending said that Wiggins had accepted he had a drink problem and had been seeking help .
