4 speeding tickets in 1 day for Alabama woman in Minnesota

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

An Alabama woman was ticketed four different times in a matter hours for speeding as fast as 112 mph on Interstate 90 in southern Minnesota.

A Minnesota trooper first stopped the 49-year-old woman in Martin County at 2:25 p.m. last Friday after dispatchers received two separate complaints of a vehicle speeding and weaving in-and-out of traffic on I-90.

The driver was ticketed for speeding, failure to provide proof of insurance and possession of marijuana.

But the woman didn't take the trooper's advice to slow down. She continued to burn a path down I-90 toward her destination of Racine, Wis., making it just 20 miles before another trooper caught her at 99 mph.

Another ticket, another warning to slow down.

After the second speeding ticket was issued, a call was put out to Minnesota troopers and the Wisconsin State Patrol to be on the lookout for the Alabama woman.

It didn't take long for her to push the medal to the metal a third time. About an hour and 10 minutes later, another trooper caught the woman driving 88 mph in Freeborn County.

Three strikes you're out, right?

Nope.

The woman was ticketed a third time and sent on her way, getting stopped a fourth time for driving 88 mph in a 70 mph zone just before the Minnesota-Wisconsin border.

The driver faces more than $500 in fines.

WHY WASN'T SHE ARRESTED?

State Patrol Lt. Eric Roeske told the Star Tribune that troopers must follow booking guidelines, and the driver didn't meet the criteria for jailing. Had she been clocked at 100 mph a second time, or had she been in possession of a larger amount of marijuana, troopers would have made an arrest.
