(WSVN) - A Florida teen was placed in the back of a cop car after police say he was caught going 112 MPH on I-95 in Brevard County.

Florida Highway Patrol said 19-year-old Angelo Donnelly was behind the wheel.

When asked for his motive, Donnelly told officials it was to impress his girlfriend.

“We were on our way to Cocoa and I was acting a fool,” said Donnelly.

A state trooper clocked Donnelly’s speed at over 100 MPH. The trooper said they had to go up to 125 MPH to catch up to Donnelly.

Donnelly’s car was towed and he was arrested for misdemeanor reckless driving.
