    Default Can you say DOH!!!! Man jailed after filming himself driving 140 mph

    I have to say I have done this too.....



    PORTLAND, Oregon (Reuters) ? A man who filmed the speedometer of his car while driving more than 140 miles per hour so he could post it on YouTube, ended up in jail on Saturday and the video confiscated, police said.

    Stanislav Vadimovich Bakanov was pulled over by police on Oregon Interstate 5 after he was clocked driving his black 2005 BMW at 118 mph. He filmed Sheriff's Deputy Ryan Postlewait as he approached the car.

    When Postlewait asked why he was videotaping, Bakanov said he was filming his speedometer, and his arrest, to post on Youtube. The video later revealed that Bakanov had attained speeds in excess of 140 mph.

    He was arrested and confined in Marion County jail Saturday night, charged with reckless driving and speeding. It was his third speeding incident in the past year. The video was confiscated and will be used as evidence against him.

    Marion County Police spokesman Don Thompson said winds were gusting at up to 50 mph during the day.

    "There were tree branches down on the freeway. To be driving at these speeds today was just plain crazy," he said.

    LOL The reason he got caught, is cuz he's Russian. Who else would be stupid enough to provide videotape evidence to the cops to prosecute him with???
    We all speed at times, & many people tape it just to prove it to their friends, but this guy prosecuted himself with his stupidity . Thanks for posting that Enkie, cuz I never saw it on the OR. news.

    According to Jeremy Clarkson, Audi S4 drivers are pretty high on the c**k-o-meter.

    That guy is one classy idiot right there haha. Why would you continue to film while the police officer walks up?! Sounds to me like he's been dying to get in jail!

    You would think that if he was going that fast that he would just keep going after seeing the cop. If you were driving that fast it seems like you would have a good head start on the cop and possibly enough to dip off the highway before he caught up. Good story. People are crazy.

    I'm not suggesting that anyone go out and do those types of speeds, but I would think that the video is still his property and should be returned to him, or he should be given access to it for his defense if nothing else. There are some types of laws on the books where you can not profit from proceeds from violent crimes, the money from OJ Simpson's books all went to the Goldman family for example, but this is just bizzare if you ask me.

    Just turning my head and scratching my ear on this one.
