A police-escorted high-speed highway run involving 30 supercars is causing a stir after public outcry over what amounts to excused law-breaking and reckless behavior.
A foul-mouthed passenger managed to catch New Jersey state troopers escorting a series of supercars at speeds of up to 100 mph on the Garden State Parkway. The video is now prompting an investigation, with two officers suspende without pay and the station commander already reassigned.
It appears the event, which occurred on March 30 was organized by New York Giants star Brandon Jacobs. He doesn’t appear in the video below, but Jacobs’ agent confirmed to USA Today that he was a part of the event.
Driving 100 mph on a public road means breaking the law anywhere in the U.S., but it’s important to note that there are also interstates with speed limits of up to 80 mph where drivers routinely drive as fast as the cars spurring these complaints. What makes the offense notable is that police officers apparently participated in and condoned speed violations on a crowded road.
