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.

He was lost—in self, mind and justice. At first, it’s hard for me to believe that this game can really motivate himself to do what he was doing on the game.

The trick didn’t work out. I think, that guy is emotionally sick. He is some kind of weird and strange. How come speeding become a message of God? Much better if they really charge him "lost". smiley

Yeah, I would agree with that. It seems that the guy has totally lost it here. Maybe that or the guy simply thought that it would be easy to get off the hook with that trick.

I guess this person needs professional help and seek advice from them. I rarely see such kind of excuse, I hope the law enforcement will able to control this situation.

Still scratching my head as to why the guy really went that way. But I still can’t understand all his rants. It’s possible that it’s really just that the guy has totally lost it.

Nice idea Cops! I think if this sign was see of the race car drivers probably the car was going slowly. It’s one of a good tactics to slow down the cars.

Well, they definitely ought to send this guy behind bars, even for just a few hours just to cool his head off. It really seems that he has totally gone loco on this one.

Is this a joke? What kind of sign is that? haha I can’t resist but to laugh at this one because it definitely makes no sense at all.

Well, that one is definitely an odd way to try and and get away with a speeding ticket. I really don’t get what the guy is trying to pull off here. Maybe he is either drunk or high on drugs.

I don’t know how would I react on this one. But this is truly hilarious. The sign behind the cop was really a big joke. I don’t get the message, but these cops are serious of charing that person.

hmm. Well,I think this what he gets from trying to "reset the future". This is the weirdest and the lamest excuse that I have heard! As a old and matured man, he shouldn’t behave like that. It would be better if he admits his mistakes.
