Cops: Woman Going 91mph in Snowstorm Needed New Stereo
Anastacia Hocking   (New Hampshire State Police)

When you feel the need to blast some tunes, apparently even a snowstorm won’t stand in your way. New Hampshire State Police say they clocked a woman driving 91mph through snow and slush on Interstate 93 during a snowstorm Wednesday morning. Anastacia Hocking's response: she was late for an appointment to have a new car stereo installed in her 2008 Saturn Astra, police tell the AP and Union Leader.

Normal speed limits in the area range from 55 to 65mph but had been reduced to 45mph due to the weather. Hocking, 21, was arrested on a reckless driving charge and is scheduled to be arraigned March 3. The Laconia Daily Sun reports the rush could cost her as much as $1,000 and a minimum 60-day loss of license if convicted. (More weird crimes stories.)
