Al Gore's son arrested, with pot, after doing 100 mph in a Prius

Guess the Tesla Roadster isn't the only green car that breaks the speed limit. Al Gore III, the son of Mr. Inconvenient Truth, was arrested this morning at 2 in the morning for having marijuana, as well as the medications including Xanax, Vicodin and Adderall without a prescription. The reason police found these drugs on him: they stopped him after he was going 100 mph in a blue Prius. This isn't the first time Gore the third has been in trouble with the law for drugs and illegal driving. The Independent reminds us that he was charged with marijuana possession in 2003 after being caught driving without headlights. He plea bargained that one away. The Daily News points out he was charged with reckless driving 94 back in 2000.

We would have been much more impressed had he been doing 100 mpG in a Prius, not mpH.
