Michigan A motorcyclist arrested whizzing through town at 137 mph told police he was just trying to be punctual, authorities said Tuesday.
The 37-year-old claimed he was "late for work."
A police officer stopped the biker at 3:35 a.m. about 80 miles northwest of Detroit. Authorities said the man had earned a spot on their bulletin board.
"This 137 mph is the new record," Tuscola County Sheriff's Lt. James Giroux said.
