Police Catch Lying Speeder From Online Forum Post

Guys, a couple words of warning: Admit to nothing — and that goes for the online as well as in the bedroom or at the pub. A UK man and his girlfriend were recently convicted of a crime (and given a nice set of tracking tags) after he bragged on an online forum about beating a speeding ticket. According to his post on PePiPoo.com — an online community site devoted to beating speeding tickets (in essence) — he got his girlfriend to say she was the one driving when the traffic camera nabbed them going nearly 90mph. Unfortunately for him, police had been watching the site, and used the man's incriminating post against him in court. The two were sentenced to 200 hours of community service for "perverting the course of justice."
