July 16, 2010
DENVER (AP) – Authorities say five drivers were ticketed and another arrested for allegedly speeding during a luxury auto rally from New York City to Las Vegas.
The Colorado State Patrol says they received several complaints as the Bullrun Live Rally passed through Colorado Wednesday. Authorities say the driver who was arrested was going more than 40 mph over the speed limit of 65 mph near Idaho Springs on Interstate 70. The driver faces charges of reckless driving and excessive speed.
Trooper Heather Cobler says five other drivers were also ticketed and several others received warnings. She says several of the cars in the rally had police scanners to adjust their speeds.
Former NBA star Dennis Rodman participated in the rally in 2005 and was ticketed for speeding in Colorado.
