As reported by Fox news via Der Spiegel, a driver in Germany was pulled over for speeding and the police discovered the guy may have a bad habit of being distracted while driving.

The guy had a laptop PC, printer, a couple cell phones, a GPS and a power inverter to provide the juice for the setup.  To be honest, I’d bet the guy was some kind of wardriver.  Side note:  I’m not surprised if I see this kind of thing on I-90 while going in/out of Chicago.

What was he charged?  118 Euro (~$120) for speeding on the AUTOBAHN – i.e. going 130kph in a 100kph zone (roughly 81mph in a 62mph zone).  I dunno, just telling people that you got busted for speeding on the Autobahn is kinda cool tho, so there’s that.

There was NO EVIDENCE he was using the equipment while driving, so he didn’t get charged for that…seriously?  Check his Facebook account.
