The driver of a Porsche 911 was arrested on June 9 after a police helicopter in Spain caught him traveling at 285 km/h (177 mph) on a highway, according to Spanish officials.

The perpetrator, an unnamed man from Ireland, was driving a 992-generation Porsche 911 Carrera with British license plates at the time of the incident. He was allegedly clocked hitting an average maximum speed of 285 km/h on the AP-6, a highway in Spain just outside of Madrid with a speed limit of 120 km/h (75 mph). The speed is just a few mph off the Carrera's top speed of 182 mph.

Video published to Twitter shows the moment the police helicopter caught the gray 911 reaching 285 km/h before being stopped by an officer at a tolling plaza in the town of Arévalo. He was arrested as the "alleged perpetrator of an alleged crime against road safety," according to the The Irish Mirror. Spanish law is pretty severe when it comes to speeding. According to The Mirror, going over the limit by 80 km/h or more can result in a large fine and a revocation of your license for up to four years. If the crime is severe enough, the perpetrator could even face jail time.
