The Washington State Patrol says at about 9:20 p.m., the 46-year-old was clocked doing 110mph in the Mount Baker Tunnel approaching the floating bridge. A trooper says the driver was passing other vehicles in the express lanes.
The trooper caught up with the Volkswagen R32 and turned on his lights. The driver kept going at high speed and didn’t stop until he exited on Mercer Island.
As the driver was taken into custody, he told the trooper he was late placing a bid on eBay.
It’s not clear what he was planning to bid on. What is clear is that he never made it. The driver was booked into the King County Jail on reckless driving charges.
