OSP arrest Lake Oswego man for driving faster than 100 miles per hour

Oregon State Police arrested a Lake Oswego man after stopping him for driving as fast as 105 miles an hour last week.

Abdolaziz Mohammed Rahim-Poor, 19, faces reckless driving charges for the incident, which happened between Hillsboro and Cornelius at about 9:30 p.m. Sept. 28.

Police spotted Rahim-Poor in a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro speeding west on Highway 8 near Hillsboro. As a state trooper attempted to overtake the car, it allegedly made multiple unsignaled and abrupt lane changes, causing four other vehicles to have to dodge it.

As the Camaro headed into Cornelius, an area with pedestrians and a 30-mph speed limit, it was reportedly still traveling at 75 miles per hour, according to state police.

After stopping, Rahim-Poor told a trooper he had borrowed the car from a friend knowing it could go fast, OSP reported.

He was lodged at Washington County Jail on a charge for driving recklessly and four counts of recklessly endangering another person. He was also cited for violating the basic rule in excess of 100 mph.
