Motorcyclist hit 111 mph, according to sheriff’s radar

Deputies allegedly clocked Adam Michael Brown at 107 mph in Marshall and 111 mph in Bealeton on Sunday.
A Fredericksburg motorcyclist twice blew through radar at more than 100 mph Sunday, according to the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office.

Arrested the afternoon of April 14, Adam Michael Brown, 29, faces charges of reckless driving and possession of marijuana, Sgt. James Hartman said.

Riding a black Yamaha motorcycle, Mr. Brown went through a deputy’s radar at 111 mph on Route 17 south of Bealeton at 12:45 p.m. Sunday, according to Sgt. Hartman. 
 
The southbound motorcycle allegedly passed the northbound deputy operating radar. That deputy talked with colleague travelling south on Route 17. The second deputy saw the motorcycle approaching from behind, Sgt. Hartman explained.

“The northbound deputy turned around, and both deputies conducted a traffic stop near Ritchie Road,” he added. “A third deputy, hearing the radio traffic, confirmed the same motorcycle had entered radar earlier on Route 17 at Interstate 66 near Marshall at 107 mph. However, the deputy was unable to safely turn around due to heavy traffic.”

But, the deputies confirmed the motorcyclist’s identity in the earlier incident, according to Sgt. Hartman.

Sgt. Chad Brubaker took arrested Mr. Brown and took him before a magistrate Sunday afternoon. Sgt. Brubaker also gave the motorcyclist a ticket for no Virginia Inspection.
