    “131! 131! You know how fast you were going?” an officer asked Lines, WEWS reported. “Everyone was honking their horn as they were going on by. So, what’s your reason for going 131?”

    “I was just showing off,” Lines replied. 

    “Really? Well, you can explain that to the judge. 131,” the officer said. “I don’t care if you were showing off, 131 is uncalled for.”
