An Arizona state lawmaker bragged to a police officer that he sometimes drives more than double the speed limit – after he was pulled over for speeding.

Police stopped Representative Paul Mosley for going 97mph (156km/h) in a 55mph zone near Parker, Arizona, on 27 March in a filmed incident.

Mr Mosley said he would go “130, 140” mph on his way home and told the cop he had legislative immunity.

The lawmaker has posted an apology on his Facebook page.
