The driver of a Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 live-streamed himself driving at a claimed 185 mph (298 km/h) before promptly being pulled over by police.
On Sunday night, Beau Alan Rogal decided it would be a good idea to start a YouTube livestream while he was behind the wheel of the Mustang. While speeding down a four-lane motorway, he claims to hit 185 mph and then says that the speed limit is 180 mph (289 km/h). That’s obviously not true.
Later on during the livestream, Rogal once again speeds down a road just outside Jackson, Mississippi, where he claims to be traveling at approximately 160 mph (257 km/h). However, Rogal’s luck soon gets the better of him as he quickly notices three police cars behind him with their lights flashing. His first response? “But I didn’t do anything.”
Shortly after getting pulled over, Rogal denied speeding through the streets in his Mustang and, remarkably, the police actually let him go with a warning.
However, Fox News reports that police reviewed Rogal’s video and a number of his posts on social media and discovered that he had numerous felonies on his record. Investigators were granted a search warrant for his home and arrested and charged Rogal with reckless driving and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Rogal was released on $20,000 bond and will have to face up to a grand jury.
Evidently, filming yourself speeding is not a good idea. And posting the video on social media, well, that’s asking for trouble.
