He got nine months suspended for attempted murder, lol.
Maybe the court felt uneasy about jailing an NHS worker (AKA a walking god)?
A Birmingham doctor deliberately drove at an elderly man and knocked him over during a “road rage” incident over a parking space.
GP Shah Ali then “heartlessly” drove off without even checking on the injured victim following the shocking incident during the mid-afternoon of August 22.
The court heard how the defendant had driven to Highbury Park, Moseley in a Mini. The victim was on an access road and had turned right in his Volvo to go into the car park intending to take his dog for a walk.
Both vehicles then found themselves “nose to nose” and the doctor then “saw red,” Birmingham Crown Court heard.
The victim, who was in his early 80’s, then got out of his vehicle and Ali then launched a tirade of four letter words at him.
The pensioner tried to explain to the defendant that he had only wanted to park in one of the two spaces available but this was met with another “diatribe of abuse.”
At one point the victim tried to pacify his dog who had started yelping but this only enraged Ali further.
The defendant then reversed his car slightly and then drove towards the Volvo where the elderly man was standing by the door.
It initially appeared he was going to drive round it but then changed the angle and struck the victim with the wing mirror of his vehicle causing him to fall to the ground.
A witness said “his wheels were spinning up chunks of gravel all over the place.”
Ali, 40, of Beaconsfield Road, Balsall Heath, who had previously been found guilty of dangerous driving, following a trial, was sentenced to nine months suspended for two years, ordered to do 180 hours unpaid work, pay £300 compensation, £2,800 costs and was banned from the roads for 18 months.
