Driver chooses jail over speeding ticket


A 45-year-old man from North Bend who refused to participate in a round-up of speeders by Washington State Patrol troopers on Interstate 90 near Preston was arrested Wednesday.

Troopers, assisted by a state patrol airplane, had stopped 28 drivers for speeding, according to a report, when a Toyota Camry zipped by. Officers clocked the Camry at 83 mph in a 70 mph zone.

When officers caught up to the driver, Kerry Bailey, he refused to show his driver's license, registration and proof of insurance. He was arrested on charges including obstructing and failing to provide information to a police officer.

He was booked into the King County Jail.
