What happens if you pass a marked patrol car while you’re speeding 120 miles per hour? You go to jail.

The officer was able to catch up to the speeding car and stop it as took the Ranch Road Exit.
The driver, identified as 25 year-old Christopher Drew Jones of Hemmingway Court, Clayton allegedly admitted to drinking prior to driving. Jones allegedly used frequent profanity towards officers, even telling one deputy, when asked to submit to a Breathalyzer test, “F**k you.”
