Hamilton has now been charged under the recent hoon laws and was fined on Tuesday. The fine was said to total a whopping... $500; an amount Lewis earns in a matter of minutes. Magistrate Clive Alsop said shortly after the charge that he would not impose Hamilton with a criminal conviction due to it being his first offense. He also said that Hamilton was ashamed and remorseful and pleaded guilty first off.
Alsop did say that Hamilton's behaviour was unacceptable though, and said in a recent British Telegraph report,
"This isn't about somebody's character, this is about somebody in a responsible position behaving like a hoon."
Meanwhile Hamilton is relieved the whole ordeal is finally over,
"I've made clear throughout that I've regretted my actions in this matter, and I'm pleased that it has now drawn to a close," Hamilton said.
We'll at least he's learned his lesson now and won't drive in a manner dangerous ever again...
