Being described by his court-appointed attorney as a "likeable idiot" is the least of Jamie Manderson's problems. The U.K. citizen is being identified as the most convicted motorist in the country's history, with almost 200 criminal offenses under his belt since the age of 15. The majority of his crimes took place while Manderson was behind the wheel, causing his license to be suspended 48 times over the last 18 years.

Between a heroin problem, numerous vehicle thefts and what's being described as "car addiction," Mr. Manderson recently admitted to driving on a suspended license and lacking car insurance, leading the judge to threaten him with jail time, but instead imposing a two-year restriction on driving.

Could this happen in the good ol' U.S. of A.? Sound off in comments.
