Speeding excuse? 'Being stupid'

A Bibb deputy clocked a guy on a Kawasaki motorcycle doing 105 mph on Interstate 75. The deputy followed him. In his report of the July 11 episode, the deputy wrote, “Once (the motorcyclist) realized I was behind him with my blue lights and siren on he pulled over. ... I asked him why he was doing 105 (in a 65-mph zone). ... He said, ‘Being stupid.’” The driver, 21, was jailed for speeding.
