Police: Teen Caught Speeding at 146 MPH in 70 MPH Zone


An 18-year-old man was arrested Wednesday after allegedly driving 146 mph in a 70 mph zone on I-95 in Maine.

Police stopped Tyler Barrows of Manchester after Maine State Police Lt. Bruce Scott received a report of a “blue sports car” speeding near Pittsfield, KING 5 reported.

Two minutes after he received the initial report, Scott saw a blue Dodge Neon speeding at more than double the speed limit.

Scott stopped the car and arrested Barrows, summonsing him for Class E criminal speed, failure to provide proof of insurance, and failure to provide proof of inspection.

Scott said he had never seen someone drive at such a high rate of speed in his entire career in law enforcement, police said.
