There's speeding, and then there's speeding. Early Sunday morning, Nassau County Police arrested Joseph Melendez after he was caught speeding on the Long Island Expressway at speeds of 122 mph and 126 mph. The police said, "During the process of following and bringing Melendez to a stop, other motorists on the road were observed being forced to take evasive action in order to avoid becoming involved in a collision."

According to Newsday, Melendez, 26, who was traveling west, was first caught going 122 mph between exits 46 and 44 around 12:30 a.m., and then he was near exit 41 at 126 mph. Finally, police were able to stop him at exit 34. He was charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless endangerment, reckless driving, and 10 traffic violations.

Last month, two men were arrested for drag racing, at speeds around 140 mph, on the LIE.
