A Manitoba driver is facing a hefty ticket after RCMP caught the person going 140 km/h on Highway 6 near Ponton, Man., south of Thompson.

Just as cops pulled over the wannabe race car driver behind the wheel of a white Kia Sorento, a fox jumped onto the road and gave the speeder a look of disdain.

RCMP sent out a playful tweet about the interaction, quoting international sensation Ylvis’s song “What Does the Fox Say”.

Police quipped “and the fox said… Jacha-chacha-chacha-chow! Chacha-chacha-chacha-chow! Chacha-chacha-chacha-CHING!”

The driver was slapped with a $573 ticket.
