Hamilton man gets 90 days in jail for driving on beach

A Hamilton man who drove a van onto a crowded beach in Port Dover has been sentenced to 90 days in jail.

Last summer, a video went viral after a driver mounted the curb at a popular summer destination, forcing beachgoers to jump out of the way before bystanders wrestled him out of the van.

Justice Gethin Edward has now sentenced 43 year old Yourem Mako to a stint behind bars, which he will be allowed to serve on weekends.

Mako pleaded guilty to impaired driving and breach of probation earlier this year.
