A California man was ticketed after he reached 88 mph in his DeLorean.

KTLA reports Spencer White was driving on a freeway in Santa Clarita  with his mother when he was pulled over.

"I looked at the speedometer and it was saying I was going about 85 miles an hour. My mom, she's looking into me and she just says, 'Take it to 88, let's do it.' So I took it up to 88 and I was at 88 for about two seconds, right, and immediately I saw a police officer pulled in behind me."

The officer asked White if he knew how fast he was going and joking ensued from both parties.

"I busted up laughing," said White, "and my mother was busting up laughing. He's even got this big grin on his face like he won the lottery. He goes to his car and then he comes back immediately and he's got the radar gun. And he says, 'Do you want to take a picture of it?'"
