The court heard the vehicle was in a dangerous position in the dark and this could have led to a serious accident.
He was also said to have lied to police originally. There was a suggestion he had been drinking.
Justices jailed the 23-year-old, of Loughborough Road, to 12 weeks in prison because the offences were so serious.
They banned him from driving for six months.
