A motorist who was accused of kicking out and threatening BBC host Jeremy Vine during a Kensington road rage row is to appeal her convictions.
Shanique Syrena Pearson was due to be sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court on Wednesday (March 1) after she was found guilty of threatening the TV and radio presenter.
Her appeal will be heard on April 18, with sentencing postponed as a result.
She had been accused of shouting foul-mouthed abuse, threatening to knock out Mr Vine and making a gun sign at the television star during the road rage row last year in Hornton Street.
Pearson, from Orsett Street in Lambeth, was convicted of driving an unlicensed vehicle, driving without reasonable consideration for other road users and using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour following a trial at Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court which saw Mr Vine, a Radio 2 DJ who also hosts shows such as Eggheads, Crimewatch and Points of View, give evidence.
He captured the incident on his helmet cam and later showed it on his Facebook page, where it was viewed by more than a million people.
Pearson had admitted to a charge of driving without a valid vehicle licence on the day.
