One-legged man arrested for driving at 300km an hour without licence

CLOCKED going at just under 300km an hour, a disabled driver has been arrested by Police in Madrid after taking a Porsche 911 for a test drive. 

The disabled motorist was pulled over by the Guardia Civil after they detected, through mobile radar, the extreme speed along a Madrid motorway. 

The 36-year old, who on arrest, was rolled away in a wheelchair was just using one leg to drive the car, as normally he would have to drive specially adapted cars and only allowed, by authorities, to drive at speeds up to 100km an hour. 

Driving without a license and no insurance, the previously convicted drug trafficker, was apparently test-driving the new silver Porsche 911 and was arrested for dangerous driving despite the fact he had already had his licence revoked until April.
