A Back to the Future fan earned himself a speeding ticket for hitting 88mph in his DeLorean, the same speed that broke the space-time continuum in the movie.

Spencer White was driving on the freeway in Santa Clarita at 85mph when he decided to see if the car could hit 88.

"I was at 88 for about two seconds and immediately I saw a police officer behind me," he told KTLA News.

Mr White's mother was travelling with him and they both saw the funny side - as did the officer who pulled him over.

"He's even got this big grin on his face like he's won the lottery," said White.

However, despite letting Mr White take a photo of the speed on his radar gun, the officer still issued him with a ticket.
