Passenger in Car Travelling 110mph in a 45mph Because His Lady Friend Had to Potty
Those of us husbands who still remain chivalrous after years of marriage know, when your gal has to potty, it's go time. Especially if you're on the road and know you're going to be passing a few sketchy gas stations, you're going to push the pedal down a little further to make sure she's got a good toilet in a safe place.
The driver of a car that was clocked at over 100mph told police he was speeding so fast because his passenger needed to use the restroom.
Officers say they arrested Robert Corson after speed radar showed Corson was traveling 110 miles per hour in a 45mph zone.
Officer Nolan Allen said he saw a white Toyota Corolla speeding near Center Road in Fairfield. The car was travelling so fast it appeared to come up off the road's surface after hitting a bump, according to officers.
Allen turned around his cruiser, and caught up to the vehicle as it pulled into a Circle K parking lot, according to Fairfield police Chief Thomas Gould.
The female passenger got out of the car and told the officers she needed to use the restroom. She then entered the Circle K.
Corson was arrested on charges of criminal speed, operating after suspension, violating conditions of release, and operating a vehicle while under the influence. His car was towed from the scene and impounded.
Robert Corson is scheduled to appear in court on November 10th.
