Motorcyclist at 137 mph says he’s late for work

August 8, 2007


— 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.

Obviously he was late for his common sense injection.

I don't know who I feel more sorry for--the biker who has to be at work at 3:30 or the cop that has to work that time.
