Met Police sergeant’s son, 20, who escaped prosecution for killing two men while drug-driving in his father’s Audi is being sued by one of their families in a £200,000 private lawsuit
A police officer’s son who killed two men while drug-driving is being sued for more than £200,000 by one of their families.
Max Coopey, then 17, was at the wheel of his Met Police sergeant father’s sports car on August 2, 2018, when he drove into sales manager Jason Imi, 48, and his colleague John Shackley, 61.
The pair, who had been walking back to their hotel from a work night out with their IT firm, were thrown over the roof of the vehicle and died the moment they hit the ground.
Mr Coopey, of Ascot, Berkshire – where he lived in his parents’ £1million home – was driving while over the limit for cannabis and had only passed his driving test two months earlier.
The son was trouble
He had also been arrested for drug-driving just eight weeks before the crash and had five previous convictions for seven offences, including common assault when he was just 12 in December 2013, robbery when he was 13 in March 2015 and handling stolen goods when he was 14.
