Well, we've seen a lot of speedsters on the road in our day, but nothing like this.

According to the Hermantown Police Department Deputy Chief Shawn Padden, he pulled over a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro ISS that was clocked at a staggering 171 MILES PER HOUR on Minnesota Highway 61.

"When he went by me it was a blur," Padden says. "You get used to seeing people going 65 or 70 and what that looks like. But I've never seen anything like this. It's like a rocket on wheels at that point."

The driver, a 36-year-old male from Lakeside, insisted that he didn't know how fast he was going. Yeah, sure you didn't, buddy.

As you would suspect, this is going to come at a steep price. Padden wrote a "coupon" for misdemeanor careless driving, which is a step above a usual misdemeanor traffic ticket. This charge could cost up to $1,000, a maximum of 90 days in jail and a revocation of a driver's license, under Minnesota's laws.

And the crazy thing is, something similar happened 2 months ago when a vehicle was stopped on the same highway traveling at 137 mph. This isn't the Autobahn, folks. 

So let this be a lesson. Don't speed. It's not worth the trouble.
