Cops Pull Over Driver in Fairfield Doing 110 in a 45 Because His Friend Had to Pee
Ever have to pee so bad that 110 mph in a 45 mph seemed defendable?
Let's set the stage. According to the Morning Sentinel, Robert Corson was driving a white Toyota Corolla (they can go 110 mph?) around 7:30 at night. Officer Nolan Allen saw the white flash and clocked him on the radar going 110 mph in a 45-mph zone on Center Road in Fairfield.
Robert told Fairfield police he was speeding because his passenger needed to use the bathroom. But Robert was going SO fast, that according to the police it looked like he actually was airborne after hitting a bump.
Officer Allen had to turn his cruiser around and caught up to Robert as he pulled into a Circle K parking lot. According to police both the driver and the passenger that had to pee were not fully cooperative, The female passenger got out of the car and told the officer she needed to use the restroom and then went inside the Circle K.
Robert Corson is looking at all sorts of charges including: criminal speed, operating after suspension, violating conditions of release, and operating under the influence. His Corolla was towed and he'll be in court this November.
