A 20-year-old man has been given a six-month suspended sentence for dangerous and daredevil driving near Barcelona.
He was caught as he posted a YouTube video from his passenger seat whilst driving down a motorway and shockingly even overtook a lorry whilst on camera. The police used social media to track the young man, who was taken into custody after he gave himself up following 40 tweets.
In addition to the suspended sentence, he has been banned from driving for a year and will go to prison if he commits a further offence in the next two years.
The man was born in Spain but is of French descent.
