Teen Nearly Breaks Record For Fastest Stop
OREGON CITY, Ore. - State trooper Matt Klare's beat is Interstate 205, and he is used to clocking drivers who are cruising along at 10, 15, even 20 miles over the posted 55 mile per hour speed limit.
But 87 miles over the limit? That's another story.
Klare clocked Ryan Allan Champ, 19, of Oregon City, driving 142 mph early Wednesday, the second fastest stop ever record by the Oregon State Police. (The record is 159 mph, set in 1993 on the Astoria Megler Bridge.)
When Klare caught up with Champ and his souped-up 1992 Honda Civic at a stoplight, "He told me he was going 140," Klare said.
Klare said Champ was driving without insurance and with a suspended license.
According to Klare, Champ said he was trying to catch up to someone who had thrown a bottle at his car.
Champ was arrested on an accusation of reckless driving and taken to Clackamas County Jail.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of up to one year in jail and a fine of $6,250, police said.
