JENKINSBURG, Ga. (AP) -- A Clayton County police officer was
arrested on charges that he drove his motorcycle at speeds of more
than 100 miles per hour.

Authorities said Clayton Officer David Eugene Carter
(http://bit.ly/sUw9sl ) sped past Butts County sheriff's deputies
on Thursday.

Butts County Sheriff Gene Pope told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Carter reached speeds of up to 108 miles per hour on a two-lane road. He stopped and identified himself as a police officer after the deputies turned on their flashing lights.

Carter told the deputies that he was afraid they were trying to
knock him off the road and take his motorcycle. He said he did not
know he was being followed by police. He could not be reached for
comment.

He was charged with speeding and evading a police officer.
