DeLorean Driver Gets The Best Speeding Ticket Ever

Normally getting a speeding ticket is a bad thing, but a Santa Clarita DeLorean owner is actually pretty excited about the ticket he got this week.

Spencer White was driving on the 14 Freeway with his mother, when they realized they were going 85 miles per hour. You can probably see where this is going.

“My mom, she’s looking at me and she just says, ‘Take it up to 88, let’s do it,” White said.

While they didn't break the space-time continuum, they did end up breaking something else - the speed limit. Of course, that was the exact moment White realized there was a cop car right behind him. Luckily, everyone saw the humor in the situation.

White described the officer as having a huge grin, "like he’s won the lottery.” He even let White snap a photo of the radar gun so there would be proof.

Turns out Doc Brown was right, and when a DeLorean hits 88 miles per hour you're gonna see some serious shit. While he thought the hilarity of the situation would get the officer to let him off with a warning, White wasn't so lucky. What he got instead was a $400 speeding ticket. Fortunately, White didn't seem too bothered, describing it as "the dream ticket."

Too bad his DeLorean didn't have a flux capacitor, otherwise he might have been able to escape.

Where Are The Cast Members From 'A League Of Their Own' Now?

A League Of Their Own was one of the most iconic movies of the 90s. I know for me, it would come on TV at least once a month, and every time I would find myself drawn in, watching it even though I probably should have been doing anything else. Between Geena Davis's confident Dotti Hinson, and Tom Hanks's cranky Jimmy Dugan, the movie was irresistible. Every character was well-developed and brought something to the movie, and together they told a story that touched a lot of hearts. It has been over 25 years since A League Of Their Own


The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


11 Disney Reboots That Are Getting Made, Whether You Want Them Or Not

Disney movies were one of those things that you treasured with all of your heart. If you were anything like me, you had a collection of those white puffy cases on VHS and were really proud of how many you had accumulated. The thing is, Disney has continued making great movies in recent years, even though they don't exactly look how we remember them looking. Sure, everything is a little bit more 3D and perhaps slightly too realistic, but the stories will still hit you right in the heart. However, lately they have been turning their sights onto something a


'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he
