Officer Butler of the San Gorgonio Pass California Highway Patrol was monitoring the I-10 eastbound traffic the evening of January 19, 2020, near Haugen-Lehmann Way, when a gray 2017 Subaru WRX zipped past him.

Officer Butler’s estimated speed at which the vehicle was traveling, 110 MPH, was nearly confirmed when the patrol vehicle’s radar clock the vehicle at 111 MPH.

Officer Butler merged onto the highway to stop the speeding driver. As the officer neared the speeding car, he observed the driver make dangerous lane changes, tailgate other drivers, reach speeds of 113 mph, and nearly cause several collisions.

Officer Butler finally caught up with the driver and was able to safely pull him over. The driver, an employee of a car dealership, was delivering the car to a customer, and related to Officer Butler he was unaware he was driving so fast.

Due to the combination of dangerous infractions – excessive speed, unsafe lane changes, and following too closely – and the driver’s apparent ignorance of his own behavior, the officer, as is his discretion, decided to a paper citation was not enough and arrested the driver.

The driver’s combined offenses could lead a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving.
