FHP: Motorcyclist clocked at 157 mph
NAPLES, Fla. -

The Florida Highway Patrol released video showing a motorcyclist speeding down Interstate 75 at more than 150 miles per hour.

Troopers say 19-year-old Santiago Guerra Pineda was initially clocked at 135 mph as he flew by the first trooper in Naples. It took more than four minutes for the trooper to catch up to Pineda.

In the dashboard camera video, troopers are later heard clocking Pineda at 157 mph. Troopers decided not to pursue Pineda because it was raining.

However, FHP says Pineda eventually ran out of gas, allowing troopers to catch up to him and arrest him.

Pineda told CBS Miami he knows he was speeding and plans to take responsibility for his actions at a court date next month.

"My record is clean," Pineda told CBS Miami. "I'm a student. I work. I sustain myself and at no point do I want to get myself into that business. I'm not a bad kid."
