GLENDALE, Ariz. -

Glendale Police say they have arrested a 21-year-old motorcyclist who was traveling 114 miles per hour on Grand Ave Wednesday morning.

About 8:40 a.m., a Glendale motorcycle officer working speed enforcement in the construction area of 43rd and Grand Avenues heard a motorcyclist approaching, heading southeast.

The officer pointed his laser at the cyclist, catching his speed at 114 mph, police say. That's more than twice the speed limit.

The officer caught up to the driver, 21-year-old Troy Johnson, at 35th Ave. Johnson allegedly used a lane that was closed to traffic for construction to pass cars stopped for a red light.

"He did not realize the significance of the speed that he was traveling nor did he know his own speed or posted speed limit. I told him that he was traveling 114 miles-per-hour 100 feet from where I was at. He had no recollection that ever happened or even cared," said Glendale Police Officer Robert Solis.

Johnson was booked into Glendale City Jail on numerous misdemeanor traffic charges. He was wearing a helmet, but did not have a class M endorsement on his license, which is what is needed to drive a motorcycle.

His reason for speeding? He was "late to work."

    It's a running joke that if you mention the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center to nearly anyone in Hollywood they're going to know exactly what you're talking about because odds are they might have gotten their first big break there. Would you believe some Hollywood's biggest stars -- Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas, Angela Bassett -- got their start in a big red barn in the middle of nowhere.
