BAKER CITY — A Boise man was arrested and charged with reckless driving on Interstate 84 near Baker City Thursday, Nov. 18, after an Oregon State Police trooper’s radar clocked the man’s car at 142 mph.

Justin Martin Brunner, 24, was cited and released, according to an OSP report.

Trooper Justus Gray wrote that he was driving westbound about 6:41 p.m. on the freeway near Milepost 312, about 8 miles southeast of Baker City, when he “observed headlights rapidly approaching in my mirrors.”

“My rear radar checked the vehicle’s speed at 152 mph in the posted 70 mph zone,” Gray wrote. “The vehicle then made an unsignaled lane change and passed me on the right without slowing down.”

Gray stopped the vehicle, a 2013 Toyota Scion FR-S coupe. Gray cited Brunner for speeding and failing to carry proof of insurance as well as reckless driving.
