Last week, a Florida man was pulled over for speeding and attempted to blame Russian President Vladimir Putin during the traffic stop.
According to reports, the unidentified driver was pulled over last Thursday after allegedly going 50 mph in a 30 mph zone and running a stop sign.
In the video, the driver tried many different reasons to explain why he was speeding, including that he just got the car and struggled to get it out of "sport mode." That excuse was followed by another saying he spotted another car coming and tried to "get out before them."
It wasn't long before the driver admitted "the truth" behind his fast speeds.
"I just found out that Putin just said he's gonna launch nuclear thermal war against the world, and I was trying to get back to my house to find out what's going on," the driver said. "I'm freaking out."
The traffic stop took place on February 24, the same day Putin launched an invasion of Ukraine.
The driver received a ticket for speeding and another for running the stop sign.
