ISANTI COUNTY, Minn. — An Isanti County deputy was “literally blown away” by the speed reading of his radar by a passing driver, according to the county sheriff’s office.
On Tuesday, the county sheriff’s office posted a picture to Facebook, with a speed radar showing 139 mph.
According to a citation, the driver – a 32-year-old North Branch man – was in a 55 mph zone at the time of the infraction. The driver was stopped near the intersection of Vassar Drive and 249th Avenue in Oxford Township.
The citation noted that the man was driving a 2006 Cadillac passenger vehicle, but did not give a specific model.
“The driver was given a free coupon for court on several offenses,” the sheriff’s office said in the Facebook post.
The deputy cited the driver with three misdemeanors, including unreasonable and excessive speed.
