The officer’s radar showed that the motorcycle, a purple 2009 Yamaha, was going 111 mph in a 45 mph zone, police said.

The officer pulled the motorcycle over at Route 59 and 95th Street and arrested the rider.

The motorcyclist, Bradley J. Smith, 26, was charged with speeding more than 40 mph over the posted limit, a misdemeanor.

Smith was released on bond and further court information was not immediately available.

    A misdemeanor for doing 111 mph in a 45 mph zone? Ridiculous. Anyone doing 25 mph over the speed limit should be taken away to jail for 30 days of cooling off. If someone wants to go that fast let him go to the racetrack and do it; not on streets where children are playing. What if a child had run out in front of him? The child would still be airbound. And they let him drive away – one stupid mistake after another. Get this idiot off the road. PERIOD.

    Take it easy Roberta, if a kid runs out in front of a car doing 45mph he’s dead. This is only a petty moving violation, if he has a reasonable driving record, they will plea it down to a simple speeding ticket.

    with a crane and then let go and bet on how many pieces that POS breaks up into. this guy is a A-hole fry him.

  • What Have You Got?

    No doubt racing with the wind and the feeling they were under.

    Why would he even stop…he deserves the ticket.
