A teenager in Canada has blamed a bathroom emergency brought on by "too many hot wings" for his speedy driving, which resulted in him getting a ticket.

The 16-year-old was pulled over by police in Manitoba for driving at 106mph, according to a tweet from the local police department on Thursday.

But when the young Chevrolet Camaro driver was asked to explain his behaviour, he said he had eaten "too many hot wings and needed a bathroom".

Officers didn’t take pity on the teenager, and fined him a total of £690 for speeding and being behind the wheel without a supervising driver.

There are "absolutely no excuses for that kind of speed," the police department added.

In further tweets, Manitoba police said an adult was able to collect the car in order to avoid it being towed, and the teenager’s license would "most likely" be suspended.
