LO driver took it a bit too fast

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, forcing four other vehicles 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 he was stopped, 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.
