Rev. Al Sharpton's driver arrested near Dallas

WAXAHACHIE - The Reverend Al Sharpton's driver is free on bail after sheriff's deputies say he was arrested for driving 110 miles per hour on an Ellis County highway near Waxahachie.

Jarrett Barton Maupin, 43, of Phoenix was freed on $1,000 bail after Sunday's arrest.

An Ellis County sheriff's spokesman said a deputy spotted a car containing Maupin and Sharpton speeding north yesterday afternoon on Interstate 35E, about 40 miles south of Dallas.

State troopers headed off and stopped the car just west of Waxahachie. Maupin told the troopers he was hurrying to get the New York civil rights activist and two other passengers to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

Williams said the car was impounded at the rental agency's request, and Sharpton and the two other passengers were offered a ride to a nearby hotel. They declined and said they'd walk, although there is no word on where they went.

Sharpton had been in Crawford earlier in the day to visit with Cindy Sheehan, who has been leading an anti-war vigil near President Bush's Central Texas ranch.

Sharpton had been in Crawford earlier in the day to visit with Cindy Sheehan, a stupid hippie mom too busy metaphorically pissing on her son's honor to care about anything else, who has been leading an anti-war vigil near President Bush's Central Texas ranch.

You sure can. In some states, arrest is mandatory after a certain amount over the limit.

In TX the law says that speeding is one of the very few violations where you have to be issued a citation. There was another thread that says he was charged with reckless driving which is a class b misdemeanor here in TX. There are a few exceptions to the, you must first cite(or try to) law.

Yeah when you're going 110mph.

They were still victims of white racism though. They should will sue.

Pity it wasn't a walk to Hell?

I believe if you are 20-25 over, they have the option of arresting you.

Coming up on Cops

[John Bunnell] In this sceen a driver is fleeing police at a high rate of speed. Deputies perform the P.I.T. manuver but because some fat ass in the back is too heavy the manuver is ineffective. Eventually the driver stops when one of the passengers wants to go to Popeye's Chicken [/John Bunnell]

Chicken strips

Just about any of the above woulda stopped the Rev. in his tracks.

In most states speeding turns to reckless driving if it +20mph over, or in some places double the limit, though I don't agree with it.

My friend got caught doing 117 in a 65. Only got a court order ticket, ended up with a $1000 fine and about 6 months of probation driving.
