We’ve heard a lot of excuses from pulled over motorists trying to wrangle their way out of getting a ticket, but this one definitely takes the cake.
A 54-year-old man from Indianapolis was pulled over for speeding and reckless driving in Hawaii and in his defense, the man - without even blinking - informed the law enforcement officials that he was carrying a "message from God to speed."
Obviously, the officers found the excuse a little perplexing and when the man continued to resist arrest, they promptly shoved a tazer in him.
According to the cops, the man was racing up and down South Kihei Road in Maui at speeds of over 80 mph, well above the 30-mph speed limit in the zone. The man’s reckless driving caused a number of pedestrians to run for their lives, after the man’s Gran Theft Auto impersonation almost caused him to hit a pick-up truck, as well as a few scared joggers.
From there, it only got weirder. When the man was asked why he was speeding, he immediately replied by saying that he was "trying to reset the future, but he was not able to go fast enough to do that". From there, he pointed out to the dumbfounded officers that "he does not respect authority and he only answers to God," who he said "could destroy them in the blink of an eye."
Needless to say, the man was booked on a number of charges, including reckless driving, resisting an order to stop, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.
Apparently, you could also charge him for taking "Lost" way too seriously.
