Surrey man jailed for ramming car into teacher

A Surrey man, who rammed his car into a teacher who told him he couldn't park at school, has been sentenced to jail.

CCTV footage of the attack, released by police, shows the Winston Churchill School teacher telling Rainer Schoeman he couldn't enter the school carpark, as it was for staff only.

After what appears to be a brief conversation, the teacher can be seen sitting on the hood of Schoeman's car.

Suddenly, the car speeds forward, picking up the teacher and carrying him on the bonnet, as it races into the carpark, before the teacher falls off as the car rounds a corner.

Schoeman narrow avoids two children on bikes as he drives in.

Police spokesperson Andrew Searle slammed the behaviour as "absolutely disgraceful".

"It is clearly no way to behave in front of children at a school, firstly with their safety in mind, but also it sets an incredibly poor example," he said.

On Friday (local time), 22-year-old Schoeman was sentenced to 10 months in jail for his drastic actions in February.

He pleaded guilty to charges of causing actual bodily harm, dangerous driving, driving without insurance and having no MOT (the UK equivalent of a warrant of fitness).

"We all know that school car parking situations are a frustration for many parents around the country, however if you cross the line, there is every chance you can go to prison, as Rainer Schoeman has done," Mr Searle said.
