Hookay. So we knew that texting while driving is stupid. But what about using your mobile phone to take photos of yourself while driving. Drunk. Speeding. Fishtailing. Running red lights. Crashing against a police car. And with no driver's licence?
Yes. That definitely goes beyond the general area of stupidity straight into the I'm a Bloody Moron, Please Shoot Me Dimension. It had to be a dumb Spaniard, of course, for this Euro-African country—alongside Italy and France—produces the biggest driving—and regular—dumbasses in the planet (I know because I was born there).
The 18-year-old driver, identified as J.C.R, was caught by the Spanish police while racing through the streets of the Northwest city of Vigo. The police noticed the speeding car at 2.50am. According to them, the guy was fishtailing and running red lights while taking photos of himself using a mobile phone.
When the police tried to stop him, the moron accelerated and tried to escape, only to be intercepted in another street. Then he tried to escape running and when he realised he couldn't make it, he returned to his car, and crashed against one of the police vehicles that was chasing him.
Adding to this list of idiotic things, when the police tested his alcohol levels, he was off of the scale. In Spanish law, that means that you will get your driver's licence automatically revoked. But then again—as the police discovered later—this guy doesn't even have a driver's licence, so it's not that he's going to care about that. Not that he will need one in jail, anyway. [Yahoo!
