Steven Green is seen in this file photo leaving court last month after pleading guilty to dangerous driving. He was sentenced Tuesday to 10 days in jail.

A reckless sports car driver will be parked in jail for 10 days.

Steven Green, 32, will also need to be a passenger for a full year each time he hops into a motor vehicle.

While Provincial Court Judge Jeff Lantz imposed a nine-month driving prohibition, Green actually faces an automatic one-year cancellation of his driver’s licence for a dangerous driving conviction.

Lantz could have ordered Green to put the car keys away for as long as three years.

The judge imposed a $100 victim surcharge on Green.

Green pleaded guilty to dangerous driving last month.

The motorist’s short-lived joy ride was caught on another motorist’s video camera.

The video, which has close to two million views on YouTube, shows Green rocketing off in a Porsche at a traffic light in Charlottetown.

The vehicle quickly spins and careens wildly out of control, hitting the median, crossing over to the merge lane, slowing, then careening off again to cross into the oncoming traffic, losing a wheel in the process.

He did not collide with any other vehicle.

At the scene, Green was issued a ticket and the Porsche was towed. Green was not injured.

    A young fool pays his lawyer to say his dog caused him to acelerate to the point he lost control, and almost caused a tradgedy. He then lied to the cops doing the original accident scene ,then the video surfaced....Grinch the judge is jealous of what ???someone acting like a fool in an overpriced car....if he is stupid enough to appeall he will walk for 3 years no problem....that was not your everyday young buck spinning his tires at an intersection......Pontiac Sunfires even other north american junk can kill you.....in the hands of an immature fool who seems to have a lot of supporters of similar lifestyles saying the poor guy was punished to much....everybody in Sleepy Hollow probably thinks the same thing...he will be right at home.

    Green's arrogance is quite nauseating.

    This guy is getting all sorts of attention for doing something so stupid. For everyone out there, please -- think about those who can't even afford a car. Think about those people who don't have a criminal record, but can't afford to even get their own set of wheels. We need to forget about people like Steven Green.

    Do people even know the value of a used 2006 porsche Cayman S? Not as much as people think. A new van is more basically lol. As far as the wiener dog defence goes. He must have had that dog in the car with him 4 months earlier when he came up behind me on bypass at about 200 kmh. And proceeded up upton road at about 180. Lucky no one was killed. Enjoy sleepy hollow I hear they have big screen TVs in there at least.

    So, no one was hurt. The guy's been embarrassed. The guy has to replace a wheel that costs more than a used car. The internet never forgets. Now we have a judge, seemingly in some jealousy mode, deciding to throw the book at him. Someone on their 3rd DUI will get 2 nights in jail, but this guy gets 10 days? If this was a Pontiac Sunfire, it might not have even gone to court. I don't think our judges could possibly be more out of touch with reality. You can see more flagrant defiance of the law while waiting for a light to change on University Ave, than the 1000 replays of this stupid dash cam video they're showing on that insufferable show Compass - great 15 minute dedication to a new health card design, what a scoop! This sentence has personal written all over it. If this guy has any money left after replacing that tire, he should appeal this silly sentence.

      You obviously have no concept on the value of that car or its wheels. My new Chevy Cruze is worth more than a beat up Cayman like he had.

    • Really?

      Did you even watch the video? Who cares about a freaking Porsche, wouldn't matter what he was driving he's lucky no one was killed. Give your head a shake. Lol its a Porsche not a Ferrari... Relax.

      First of all, drunk people make stupid decisions. I've never had a DUI before but I've been drunk plenty of times and I understand why some people might decide to drive while intoxicated. I am not condoning it. They think they can do it and alcohol is bad for self discipline. This silly rich guy made the choice to do something really stupid and extremely dangerous, in his right mind... He could have killed somebody. He wasn't intoxicated, his thinking wasn't altered. He was just showing off and could have killed himself, even. It's actually quite refreshing considering how the law works for the rich and the poor. This guy can afford a Porsche and good counsel but he still got jail for a minor crime. It's a great day for justice.
