This guy is a total moron and deserves a trip to jail. Not for the driving though, for confessing and acknowledging any of this. The DA is lucky on this one because there should be no case.

I gotta try the 12 o'clock hand-on-wheel position. Looks like great control at 195mph.

+1, it's certainly an uphill battle to try and prove beyond reasonable doubt that something posted on the internet is factual. Hell, let's go arrest Paul Walker, I saw a video with him street racing a ferrari.

Wow that car is insane. Sucks he was dumb enough to claim the video as his own.

Couldn't watch this at work. But I read all the Vin Diesel comments. Thats all I could think about when I got a chance to watch. Hahaha! Didn't move that hand at all during the whole video.

Was he in Tulsa? I think I was on that turnpike just a few weeks ago. It looks very familiar.

Corvette driving asshat deserves the shitstorm he ensued on himself. pride comes before the fall.

What would the arrest charges be? I thought excessive speeding, reckless over a certain amount was just a larger fine.

Wow. What an idiot for actually confessing it's his... they wouldn't be able to prove it was him beyond a reasonable doubt unless they traced his ip address- which i doubt they'd do for a youtube video.

I'm going to guess that he admitted due to overcompensation. That's probably the only reason he made the video in the first place.
