This story is also from America. Police in Indiana stopped Timothy Thompson, 23, when they caught him doing 100mph.
It’s full of “allegedly” statements, but it appears that he’d only been freed from jail that morning and was on his way to his wedding. He was driving erratically and changing lanes a lot – which I suppose is quite normal if you’re going 50mph faster than everyone else on the highway. As he pulled into the church parking lot, which had three of his relatives in it waving their arms at him, he accelerated and did a doughnut, creating a thick blanket of smoke.
The American version is here. Neither story tells why he was in jail to begin with – but from his “alleged” comments, stupidity would be my first guess.
