Beyond all the running from the cops stuff. In the US is it an arrestable offense to go over 100mph? I've done it a couple times on my bike.

Sounds like he was doing pretty well for being drunk.
You'd be suprised how well the "turning off your lights thing" works. I've done it before when friends are following behind me on a dark country road. They thought I went around a corner that didn't exist.

Bracci today is in police custody and was charged with driving while intoxicated, first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, reckless driving, unlawfully fleeing police, resisting arrest, criminal mischief, leaving the scene of an accident and approximately 56 traffic tickets from Greece Police and State Police, Kula said.

Seems to me he had 56 previously unpaid tickets and the editor who wrote that headline was a tard "Driver hit 111 mph, receives 56 tickets."

No, I'm pretty sure he got 56 tickets from the chase. Notice how none of the charges listed are violations like "failure to stop at a stop sign", "running a red light", or even "speeding"? You're going to rack up quite a few of those during a high-speed chase through a residential area. 56 of them, apparently.

My guess is it would be hard to get 56 unpaid tickets anyway. After, say, the 30th or so I imagine they stop giving you a ticket when they pull you over and just arrest you.

I'm not sure it's arrestable, but it certainly will put a huge dent in your wallet with points, fines, insurance surcharges and lawyer's fees unless:

1- You're an on-duty cop driving a marked patrol car with lights flashing, then you're OK.

2- You're an on-duty cop driving a marked patrol car no lights, then you're OK.

3- You're an off-duty cop driving a marked patrol car with or without lights, then you're OK.

4- You're an off-duty cop driving your personal vehicle, then you're OK.

5- You're an off-duty cop driving your personal vehicle while drunk, then you're OK, unless you get into an accident and there are witnesses, then it's about 50/50 chance of it being bad for you.

/ sees way too many cops speeding 20+ over without lights on. It will cause a serious accident soon.

I thought I saw in one of those "know your rights" videos that you could be arrested at a traffic stop for any speeding violation, and that cops give you tickets because it's a hell of a lot more convenient. I could be completely full of shiat though.

However, from reading the New York state laws, you can be imprisoned for 15 days for going 10mph over the speed limit. I would guess in most states 100mph+ would be reckless driving.

I remember being taught that you can't be arrested just for speeding in Texas, because of a small town speed trap that kept arresting everyone passing through the town.

I'm from a small WNY town. One of the local cops received a DWI from one of his co-workers and apparently could only drive a car while on duty for the year following conviction. The cop that received the DWI is a pretty popular guy...
 
2009-09-09 12:05:52 PM  
He was arrested for "driving while intoxicated, first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, reckless driving, unlawfully fleeing police, resisting arrest, criminal mischief, (and) leaving the scene of an accident."

And cited for "... approximately 56 traffic tickets from Greece Police and State Police, Kula said." Without a list we can guess at failure to stop at stop sign, speeding, driving without lights, and so on.

I picked up about 17 tickets in 5 minutes once, when the cops followed me racing around downtown. An accumulation of running red lights, stop signs, speeding, tires screeching etc. etc. It soon adds up, I can see it taken to even more extremes here.
