    He's sure setting a good example for his young fans, as well as making his sponsors proud. But wait... he was testing out a new sports car! What a moron.

    Bruce, he wasn't treated like the public. Normally 100mph+ is an automatic trip to jail. He did charge him with reckless and speeding so yes, those would be the charges, but normally he'd have gone to jail.

    Here it's "Careless/Reckless Driving." They aren't two separate charges.

    Same here, have to see an actual close call that would have caused serious injury.

    WOW, 128mph! How in the world would you ever get him actually stopped?

    I have passed a few cars going 110+ on the interstate, getting turned around and catching up was out of the question. Couldn't even see em in the rearview by the time I looked in the mirror.

    He must have got him on radar and had some guys in a position to intercept.

    Cite and release. No reason to book on a misdemeanor if he isn't drunk, you're reasonably sure of his identity and there is no reasonable belief that the offense is going to continue. We have a specific charge for going over 100 MPH, but it isn't automatically reckless.

    These guys do whatever the hell they want, and then their PR people make 'em memorize the usual speech that every famous person gives after every dumbass thing. All the while the dumbass couldn't care less as long as it really doesn't effect their life. Oh well. I guess that's life.

    100+ mph isn't a trip to jail around here. It's an M-4, 4 point speed. A "normal" speed, like 70 / 55 or something, would be a M-M and no points, maybe 2 points depending on the person's record.

    I'll fess up, I got a ticket for 119 / 55 on my motorcycle back in 2004. I passed the officer and knew it was coming so I just pulled over and waited. Yeah, I was a cop at the time, yeah I knew the cop who wrote me, yeah I had it coming, and no I wasn't treated any differently than anyone else would have been. I paid the ticket the next day... it was a mere $159, which I thought was pretty cheap considering. Oddly, my insurance didn't even go up... they give a break on your first speeding ticket. :rofl:

    Back in your day wasn't the Ford V8 the fastest car on the road? Didn't Clyde Barrow use one? I think it got up to 68 MPH. LOL. I'm sorry I couldn't resist. I enjoy reading your posts.

    Actually pretty uneventful. She was professional and I was appropriately remorseful. After she cleared the stop we set up her camera and took a few staged photos of her giving me a lecture on the side of the road. Those photos and the blue copy of my cite are framed in my garage... reminds me to keep my **** in check!

    We are still friends; just had lunch with her a few months back.
