YouTube Lamborghini driver arrested in Japan

Featured - July 11th, 2012

A 38-year old Japanese executive has been arrested after posting a video of himself driving a Lamborghini at twice the speed limit.

The man filmed himself driving his sports car around Hiroshima at 160 kph in a 60 kph speed limit zone two years ago. He later uploaded the video on YouTube, and a viewer reported the footage to the police, according to authorities.

The video has since been removed but the police have finally arrested the man for traffic violations, using the footage as a lead. The executive told the police that he “enjoyed the sound of the engine and the speed.”
