You don't see this one every day. An English farmer took things to the street (literally). However, when police busted him for drag racing his New Holland T6.175 tractor against a group of motorcycles things went south.
Amesbury Police tweeted out a picture of the tractor with a giant sticker reading "Seized by Police" strategically placed on the side window. The department reportedly received multiple reports about the street race on a public road and showed up to shut it down. The motorcyclists escaped, however officers caught the farmer given his mode of transportation.
