202km/h driver caught by brother-in-law

A Hastings man clocked driving at 202km/h was pulled over by a police constable who turned out to be his brother-in-law.

Officers who pulled over James Stanley Buckrell, 36, on January 29, said the late-model V8 Holden Commodore sounded like a “rocket” as it headed towards their parked patrol cars at Trinity Hill Winery about 12.30am.

The co-owner of BJ’s Bakery was first clocked by his brother-in-law, Senior Constable Tim Rowe, who pursued Buckrell yet didn’t realise who it was until he had stopped.
