A man caught speeding told police he was in a rush to get home because he “didn’t want his McDonald’s to get cold”.
The reckless motorist was speeding as he undertook an unmarked police car while driving on a single-track road after racing through Sheffield, South Yorks.
Officers, who pulled the motorist over and checked his details, discovered he wasn’t insured to be behind the wheel.
A South Yorkshire Police spokesperson joked: “It’s been a positive night shift on the beat.
“This vehicles driver decided to overtake our officers in an unmarked vehicle at excessive speeds, putting everyone’s life at risk.
“All because he didn’t want his McDonald’s to go cold.
“It just so happened this vehicle wasn’t insured either.
“It’s safe to say the driver wasn’t ‘lovin it’.
“Our version of a takeaway was arranged and the driver waved goodbye to his vehicle.”
The Volkswagen Golf car he was driving was seized by police.
