South Carolina Biker Arrested After Posting Video Of Himself Speeding From Cops (Video)

| by Emily Smith

South Carolina moyorcyclist Derek Kellett was arrested after he posted a video on YouTube showing police pursuing him as he sped down a busy road at 100 mph.

Kellett used a GoPro camera attached to his helmet to record the event, then posted the video last month under the title "Yamaha R6 Runs From Cops - Full High Speed Chase!!"

In the video, the bike can be seen reaching speeds up to 115 mph as Kellett tries to avoid the police. He repeatedly crossed solid double yellow lines and stop signs. Eventually, police were forced to give up the chase when it became too dangerous to puruse Kellett down a two-lane road. 

Investigators later managed to charge Kellett when they discovered his YouTube account and the video he had uploaded. 

The 26-year-old was charged with five counts of reckless driving, disregarding a traffic control device and a failure to stop.
