Speeds of 150 mph were clocked early Friday by Grapevine police as they tried to stop a sports utility vehicle on Texas 114, according to reports.
The driver of the 2008 Buick Enclave, Ismael Esparza, 37, of Southlake, was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated, said Lt. Todd Dearing, spokesman for Grapevine police.
An officer was sent at 2:18 a.m. to check on a report of an intoxicated driver on Texas 121, north of DFW Airport, Dearing said.
It was unclear if the Enclave was the same vehicle, but it passed the officer's patrol car at a very high speed, Dearing said.
The officer followed the vehicle as it continued west onto Texas 114, Dearing said.
The Enclave, he added, changed lanes without signals and then it was clocked going 150 mph in a 60 mph zone.
A Car and Driver Website lists the Enclave's top speed (governor limited) at 109 mph, but Dearing said he's sticking to the speed listed in the police report.
"Regardless, he was cooking well over the speed for that area," Dearing said.
