Two men caught racing at almost 120 miles per hour found themselves in the Coryell County Jail late Wednesday night.

A Coryell County deputy was on patrol on FM 116 Wednesday night about 8:30 p.m. when he saw two cars coming toward him, one in the passing lane, at what appeared to be a high rate of speed.

He unlocked his radar and clocked one of them at 116 miles per hour, then turned around turning on his overhead lights.

He noted the vehicle in front was a grey Honda S2000 and the other was a Grey SUbaru STI.

He got the two stopped and took the drivers into custody.

Arrested were 22-year-old Ian Michael Anderson who had an Iowa driver’s license and 20-year-old Nicolas Isaiah Rodriguez who had a Nevada driver’s license.

He did learn that the two drivers knew each other before taking them to jail on charges of racing on the highway.

There was no crash and there were no injuries.
