A BMW driver travelling at 127mph on the A1M in Cambridgeshire was caught and charged after he overtook a marked police car.
Police intercepted the speeding driver earlier today: they have since been charged with reckless driving.
Roads’ policing officers who made the arrest confirmed the motorist was suspected of drink driving but refused to provide a breathalyser test.
The arrest was made after the BMW driver was stopped at Sawtry, eight miles south of Peterborough.
A Twitter post from Beds, Cambs and Herts Road Policing Unit (BCH), said: “At 5:11am on Sunday March 6, a BMW overtook a marked police car on A1M Sawtry at 127 mph.
“Driver was suspected to be drunk but failed to provide. Arrested and charged”
The driver will later appear in a magistrates’ court to learn the outcome of their actions.
