A BLUNDERING motorist was dubbed "dumbest criminal of the week" for driving home from court after being banned.
The dopey criminal, who was not named, was handed a year-long ban from the roads after appearing in court.
But he immediately got behind the wheel of his car to drive home from court – and was stopped by police in Pwllheli, North Wales.
A North Wales Police spokesman said: "He's thought it was a good idea to drive from court in his car after being disqualified from driving for 12 months.
"Pwllheli Policing Team have stopped him and he's been reported for driving whilst disqualified, no insurance, and subsequently the car was seized."
One social media user said: "The award for dumb criminal of the week goes to this guy."

In 2020 a mum was caught driving away from court — just minutes after being banned from the road.
Simara Knopka, 39, had just been disqualified for two years and warned she faced jail if she was caught behind the wheel again.
She was then snapped moments later pulling away from Manchester crown court in her Peugeot 208.
