PORTLAND, Oregon – A man who filmed the speedometer of his car while driving more than 140 miles per hour so he could post it on YouTube ended up in jail Saturday and the video was confiscated, police said.

Stanislav Vadimovich Bakanov was pulled over by police on Oregon Interstate 5 after he was clocked driving his black 2005 BMW at 118 mph. He filmed Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Postlewait as he approached the car.
