New Record Set By Speedy Motorcyclist For Sheriff's "Wall Of Fame"

By Laura Trowbridge     Aug 7, 2007 in Crime
At 3:35 AM this morning a police officer arrested a 37-year-old motorcyclist speeding through the town of Richville, Michigan. He was clocked at 137 miles per hour and has broken the former record of 118 m.p.h. on the sheriff's "Wall of Fame."
“We have a ‘Wall of Fame’ here in the report room, and when anybody arrests someone traveling over 100 m.p.h., we mark it down,” Tuscola County Sheriff’s Lt. James Giroux said following the arrest of the Fairgrove man.
Giroux claimed he held the record for quite awhile after he caught a guy doing 108 m.p.h., but then another officer nabbed a motorcyclist doing 118 m.p.h. and he held top honors on the famous wall for about a year.
The new guy who now has broken the speed record told the arresting officer that he was "late for work." He will be very "late for work" now that it has been reported that he is in jail for the charge of "fleeing and eluding police."
