Dangerous driver nicked by cops after overtaking police car at 140mph

MOTORWAY police swooped on a speeding driver whose BMW (above) raced past a patrol car on the M1 at 140 MPH!

South Yorkshire Police Operational Support said they had chased down the dangerous motorist after spotting him near junction 34 and ordered him to pull over after he was spotted dashing along at twice the 70mph limit.

The team said in a social media post: “Today’s lesson in top level buffoonery comes curtesy of the driver of this BMW, who decided that driving on the M1 at 140 miles per hour past one of our cars was a good idea.  

“Needless to say, the driver was stopped a few miles further down the motorway.   

“Here like my Sunday Roast gravy, the plot thickens as the driver was circulated as wanted for failing to appear at court for driving whilst disqualified.”

The driver was arrested and taken into custody on suspicion of driving while disqualified on more than one occasion, speeding and having no insurance.

A police spokesperson said the man was due in court this morning
