(HAYESVILLE) - An off-duty State Trooper jailed a Bedford man Friday morning on reckless driving charges after clocking him traveling more than 100 miles per hour.

At 7:11 a.m. Friday morning, Senior Trooper Jarrod Lents was off duty and was traveling southbound on US 231 just north of the Haysville bridge, when he saw the headlights of another southbound vehicle approaching him extremely fast.

Lents activated the rear antenna of his radar speed timing device and clocked the approaching vehicle at 101 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone. Lents pulled to the side of the road and allowed the silver Chevrolet Impala to pass.

Lents activated his emergency lights and stopped the Chevrolet in Haysville.

Lents asked the driver, 36-year-old Matthew Jeter, of Bedford to step from the car, and placed him into custody. Jeter was lodged in the Martin County Jail on a single count of reckless driving, a Class B misdemeanor.
