On Thursday morning, police in Hingham, Massachusetts pulled over 22-year-old Scott Lowe of Rockland, Massachusetts for speeding. And he had a hell of an excuse.
He told the cops he'd just won $50,000 on a $2 lottery scratcher . . . and he was heading to the lottery headquarters in Braintree, Massachusetts to cash it in.
The police noticed he was SHAKING from excitement. He even showed them the ticket. And he was telling the truth . . . he'd won $50,000.
So they let him GO . . . with a warning on his speeding ticket. Which is kind of like winning a SECOND lottery for a few hundred dollars more.
Scott headed on to the lottery office and cashed in his ticket.
