An Alpharetta man was arrested Tuesday night after he was driving 112 mph. He also told police he was driving that fast while using Snapchat.
Malon B. Neal, 24, was charged with reckless driving, speeding and using wireless communications while driving. Neal’s car was towed and he was taken to the North Fulton Detention Center. He has since been released.
According to a police report, an officer was shooting radar on northbound Ga. 400 at Mansell Road around 10:30 p.m. when he saw a 2015 black Dodge Charger change lanes and accelerate, leaving all other traffic behind. The officer activated his radar unit and saw the driver was traveling at 112 mph.
A charge of reckless driving is a misdemeanor, and if convicted, a driver can face a fine of up to $1,000 and jail time of up to one year. A person’s license can also be suspended for reckless driving.
Fulton County court records do not show a court date set for Neal.
