He thought he was a NASCAR driver. Or maybe on the Autobahn. Or maybe he’s just an idiot. Either way, 21-year-old Jose Luis Quintanilla is now in jail, and you won’t believe how fast he was going!
Jose was arrested charged with reckless driving along the Tomball Parkway on Wednesday evening around 6PM. A Harris County Constable Precinct 4 deputy clocked Quintanilla at 151 mph in a 65 mph zone in his black Mercedes Benz.
When the deputy tried to stop the vehicle, Quintanilla exited to parkway near Holderrieth Road, hit a dirt median, and lost control.
He was arrested and booked into Harris County Jail, where his bond was set at a flimsy $500. Surely, anyone who can afford to trash a Mercedes Benz deserves a bigger bond than that.
