Daredevil driver caught going 121 mph in rented Lamborghini
New York police busted a restless daredevil going 121 mph in a rented Lamborghini on the FDR Drive Friday.
22-year-old Brandon Bennett Sharpe was caught around 1 a.m. near E. 71st St., police said. The driver was heading toward Lower Manhattan at three times the speed limit before the cops pulled him over.
“Let this be a warning to anyone else who thinks less traffic means you can speed - you CAN’T!” Inspector Kathleen Walsh, commanding officer of the 19th Precinct wrote on Twitter Friday. “Highway patrol is out in force to keep our roads safe.”
No injuries were reported, cops said. Cops charged Sharpe with reckless endangerment, fleeing an officer in a motor vehicle and unlawful possession of marijuana.
He was given a desk appearance ticket and will respond to the charges in Manhattan Criminal Court in a few weeks, police said.
