CHP: Driver speeds, exceeds 100 mph because passenger was 'late for probation hearing'
You’re running late to a probation hearing.
It’s not a good drive at more than 100 miles per hour on the way.
But California Highway Patrol officers say one driver did.
And that was just the beginning.
“Our helicopter observed a vehicle at a high speed, at more than 100 miles per hour,” says Officer Victor Taylor with California Highway Patrol.
Officers followed the red Toyota – all the way to the Juvenile Justice Campus.
“It parked in a handicapped spot,” Taylor says.
Problem is, the handicapped placard but did not belong to that car.
“The placard was confiscated,” Taylor says.
He adds, “the driver had a suspended license.”
Probation officials tell FOX26 News the teenager had been there for a hearing to have his ankle monitor removed.
He was late for the hearing, and walked in with an officer as an escort.
