Police: I-80 driver again going more than 100 mph

La Salle-based state police said a suburban Chicago man, who was driving 125 mph two weeks ago on Interstate 80, was driving 117 mph Thursday.

At 11:55 p.m. Thursday just west of La Salle, Antoine C. Spann, 28, Dolton, was arrested on complaints of driving 117 mph in a 70-mph zone, failing to signal, littering, illegal transportation of alcohol, no driver's license and failing to provide proof of insurance. He posted $200 bond and was released.

Police said that after a trooper went to stop Spann, the Dolton man threw alcohol containers out his window. Spann's alleged speed qualified as aggravated speeding, making the matter a misdemeanor rather than a simple traffic violation.

Spann was also cited Dec. 1 on I-80 near Ottawa on a complaint of driving 125 mph in a 70-mph zone and disregarding a traffic control device. He also posted $200 bond in that arrest.

Spann was driving a 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix both times, which was towed after his arrests. He was also traveling east on both occasions.
