A young Oklahoman is in a heap of trouble today after being arrested for driving over 200 miles per hour on the Oklahoma Turnpike.

According to KFOR, Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Ryan Smith was patrolling a stretch of the Kilpatrick Turnpike in Oklahoma City on the evening of November 12. Near the Council Road exit, Trooper Smith spotted a 2011 Ford Mustang speeding along at about 84 mph. Trooper Smith attempted to pull the Mustang over, but the driver flipped off his headlights and bolted. Trooper Smith gave chase and a high-speed pursuit ensued. Trooper Smith and the fleeing Mustang allegedly reached speeds of over 200 mph as clocked by the trooper's radar before the Mustang driver exited the turnpike at Northwest Expressway. Unfortunately for him, a Canadian County sheriff's deputy picked up his trail and ran him down in a nearby parking lot.

The driver, 19-year-old Hector Fraire, tossed his keys out of the hot Mustang's window and was taken into custody without further incident. He was charged with reckless driving and felony eluding.

Now, the question here isn't, "Why was he going so fast?" It's more like, "What kind of Mustang goes over 200 mph?" Jalopnik states that a bone stock 2011 Mustang GT with a 5.0 V8 is electronically limited to 155 mph. Still fast, but not as pants-on-head crazy fast as the OHP claims Fraire was going. Even if the governor was removed, Fraire still would have needed a lot of work done to his Mustang to break 200. We're talking serious forced induction-type work here.

Whatever the case may be, a poorly calibrated radar or a super sleeper 1,200 hp Mustang or something else entirely, the fact remains that Fraire is probably going to spend a lot of time on foot after this little stunt.
