A MAN accused of assaulting cops failed to appear in court only to have his Bentley seized after a major blunder.
The alleged offender later drove his luxury SUV to a West Midlands police station but appeared to forget it had no insurance.
The man had his 190mph Bentley seized after driving it to a police station
He arrived at the station in the vehicle, which sells for about £160,000, only for it to be seized by police.
An image of the green Bentayga was posted to Twitter by the Erdington Policing Constituency.
Sgt Ellis wrote: “Male arrested for failing to appear at court for assaulting officers.
“Fails again when he drives to the police station in this 190-mph Bentley without insurance.
“Vehicle was subject to multiple speeding offences across the UK and has been seized.”

With the power of accelerating from zero to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds), the vehicle has a top speed of 190 mph (306 km/h).
Insurance is a necessity if you want to drive a car on the public roads in Britain.
Along with a fixed penalty of £300, you will get six points on your licence.
The police also have the power to seize, and in some cases, destroy the vehicle that’s being driven uninsured.
Uninsured driving is a huge problem with an estimated one million drivers on UK roads without cover.
And ‘hit-and-run’ drivers kill around 120 people and injure 29,000 every year.
It comes after a similar incident in which police seized a £270,000 Lamborghini after finding the driver was uninsured.
The 217mph Aventador was stopped for having no front number plate.
A computer check indicated the driver owned the Italian supercar but could not show he had insured it.
A spokesman said: “Police spotted this beautiful Lamborghini Aventador without a front plate.
“The vehicle was seized and the driver reported.”
