A Georgia man who was arrested Tuesday night for driving 112 mph in a 65 mph zone told police he did it for Snapchat.
Malon B. Neal, 24, of Alpharetta, has been charged with reckless driving, speeding and using his phone while driving, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution reports.
Police said when they pulled Neal over, he admitted he knew he was going over 100 mph and explained that he was driving that fast for Snapchat.
Neal’s 2015 black Dodge Charger was towed and he was taken to the North Fulton Detention Center but has since been released.
Following the incident, the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety tweeted, “Seriously? ‘to look good on Snapchat’ is never a reason to endanger the public…especially at 112 MPH.”
If convicted of reckless driving, Neal faces a fine of up to $1,000 and could also have his license suspended. Police said Neal is lucky he didn’t hurt or kill someone.
