Katie Price Denies Driving With Phone

Katie Price's court case was adjourned today (28.09.10).

The former glamour model was at Mid Sussex Magistrate's Court to face a charge of not being in proper control of a vehicle, relating to an incident on February 19 when police officers allegedly spotted her using a mobile phone while driving her pink horsebox in West Sussex, South England.

However, the case was adjourned after Katie's lawyer Nick Freeman argued the proceedings were "defective", stating his client was not informed of the correct charges against her.

Freeman claimed Katie was told at the time she was being reported for using a mobile phone while driving and driving without due care and attention with no mention of charges of not being in proper control of a vehicle.

Earlier, prosecutors claimed the driving of the 32-year-old star - whose cage-fighter husband Alex Reid was in the passenger seat at the time of the incident - caused two other vehicles to swerve away as she drifted into their lane on the A23 road.

Prosecutor Rachel Beckett said: "PC Mann observed a vehicle which he saw drifting slightly into lane two from lane one.

"PC Mann drove up next to the vehicle and saw Miss Price was driving and saw that she was using a mobile phone.

"When the defendant saw the police car, she held the device down."

Sussex police officer Phil Mann - who spotted the star's erratic driving - told the court he thought he saw Katie texting on a phone before he pulled her over.

Katie denies using her phone while driving and claims she was holding a perfume bottle not a phone, while her lawyer Freeman argued the description was totally "inaccurate" because Katie's phone is covered with gems.
