Las Vegas, Nevada – A 22-year-old man is facing charges of evading a police officer, reckless driving, and driving with expired registration after he was allegedly caught driving 135 mph in a 35 mph zone.
According to the Metropolitan Police Department, Cire Luster was driving a white Lamborghini east on Starr Avenue toward the intersection with Bermuda Road at 135 mph around 10 p.m. on Nov. 16.
When police activated their lights and sirens, Luster ran red lights at Starr and Bermuda and at Bermuda and St. Rose Parkway before continuing to drive more than 100 mph over Interstate 15.
Luster eventually came to a stop in traffic and told police that he was speeding because he thought another vehicle was following him and he was scared.
Court records show that Luster was cited for speeding in May and October. He is due in court on Dec. 18.
If you are convicted of evading a police officer, you could face a sentence of up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. You could also lose your driver’s license for up to one year.
If you are convicted of reckless driving, you could face a fine of up to $500 and a jail sentence of up to six months. You could also lose your driver’s license for up to one year.
