Canadian Driver Blames Mötley Crüe for Speeding Ticket
"Always got the cops coming after me"
Published Jan 09, 2019A motorist in Manitoba has learned the hard way that you can't use Mötley Crüe's high-octane classic "Kickstart My Heart" as an excuse to drive well over the speed limit.
As the RCMP in Manitoba posted on Facebook, a driver was pulled over after clocking in at 145 km/h. His excuse was that the Dr. Feelgood cut was on the radio.
"Funny enough, our officer knew he was telling the truth, since he was also listening to it — just at a much slower & safer speed," the RCMP wrote, revealing that the driver was then handed a $639 fine.
Perhaps a more shocking takeaway is that the driver was able to get a Dodge Caravan up to that speed, but when the Crüe is blaring, sometimes the lead foot has no other option.
Lately, Machine Gun Kelly was linked to a Mötley Crüe biopic, while drummer Tommy Lee went after Travis Scott online for allegedly jacking his stage show.
