Man jailed after driving BMW to 140 mph and posting it on YouTube

BMW going more than 140 mph

Let’s start with this – every time you want to video tape doing something crazy in your car, don’t post it on YouTube. Instead, gather all your friends to your hang-out spot and show them on your Apple iPhone.

According to a report by Reuters, a man who filmed himself driving more than 140 mph so he could post on YouTube, ended up in jail last week, police said. The man, named Stanislav Vadimovich Bakanov, was pulled over by authorities on Oregon Interstate 5 after he was clocked driving 2005 BMW at 118 mph. As Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Postlewait approached the car, Bakanov continued to videotape the officer.

When Postlewait asked why he was videotaping, Bakanov said he wanted to film his speedometer and his arrest, after which he wanted to post on YouTube. The video on YouTube later revealed that Bakanov had actually hit a top speed of 155 mph.

He was arrested and put into Marion County jail Saturday night and is charged with reckless driving and speeding.
