BERLIN -- Forget texting while driving. German police say they nabbed a driver who had wired his Ford station wagon with an entire mobile office.
    
Saarland state police said Friday the 35-year-old man was pulled over for doing 130 kph (80 mph) in a 100 kph zone while passing a truck Monday.
    
Built on a wooden frame on his passenger seat they found a laptop on a docking station tilted for easy driver access, a printer, router, wireless internet stick, WLAN antenna, and an inverter to power it all.
    
A navigation system and cellphone mounted to the windshield completed the array.
    
Since there was no evidence he used the office while moving, he got away with a €120 ($153) speeding ticket and a possible fine for having unsecured items in his car.
