No criminal charges after videos posted showing man speeding

Posted: Updated:
PORTAGE, Mich. (AP) -

A prosecutor says a southwestern Michigan man won't face reckless driving charges after police say he posted videos online of himself driving up to 160 mph on an area highway.

TV station WWMT aired videos of the man driving on U.S. highway 131 that were posted on a Facebook page.

Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeff Getting says in a statement there are no witnesses and the videos likely couldn't be admitted as evidence in court. He says that without more evidence the driver only could face traffic citations for careless driving, a civil infraction.

State police say the driving put the public in danger.

The man recorded himself at times driving with his knees. Police went to the man's home in Portage, where he told them he likes to drive fast.
