Spanish boy racer cuffed for snapping self on mobe

While drunk, without a licence, jumping red lights, etc etc

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

A Spanish youth is in a bit of bother with the powers that be after drunkenly snapping himself on his mobile while fishtailing his wheels round a roundabout and jumping a few red lights in the process.

When coppers descended on 18-year-old Vigo lad "JCR" at 2.50am local time yesterday, he decided to make good his escape, only to be cornered by police vehicles after a motorised pursuit. He then attempted to leg it, realised he was on a hike to nowhere, jumped back into his motor and promptly crashed into a cop car.

He was subsequently discovered to be over the drink-drive limit, and without a driving licence. Unsurprisingly, he was held in custody pending an appearance before the beak.

JCR's world-class escapade will doubtless earn him an "International Driver Of The Year" nomination - a title currently held by Oz's Brendon Alan Erhardt, who last year videotaped himself masturbating while gunning it at 147km/h (91 mph) in a Holden SV6 packed with 5kg of cannabis, two dope plants, a couple of drug pipes and a loaded .22 rifle. ®
