Mass. man's speeding excuse? I won the lottery!

A Rockland man busted for speeding through Hingham had a pretty good excuse when he was pulled over

HINGHAM, Mass. — A Rockland man busted for speeding through Hingham had a pretty good excuse when he was pulled over — he'd just won a big prize playing the lottery and was on his way to collect his cash.

It turns out Thursday was 22-year-old Scott's Lowe lucky day in more ways than one. The officer who pulled him over issued a verbal warning and urged him to drive safely.

Lowe told the officer he was speeding because he had won $50,000 on a scratch-off ticket and was on his way to Massachusetts State Lottery headquarters in Braintree to collect his winnings.

WCVB-TV (http://bit.ly/1crD2Wu ) reports that police say Lowe was shaking, and showed the officer his winning ticket.

After the warning, he went on his way and claimed his prize.
