PAWLING, N.Y. (AP) – State police say a 23-year-old man clocked driving at more than 130 mph on an upstate New York road is facing multiple traffic charges.

Police say a trooper spotted Michael DiBernardino’s 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer doing 134 mph in a 55-mph zone Tuesday afternoon in the Dutchess County town of Pawling, near the Connecticut border 65 miles north of New York City.

Authorities say he passed several vehicles on a two-lane stretch of state Route 22 before the trooper ended the chase when DiBernardino pulled onto a side road.

He was later found in the driveway of his nearby home and arrested.

Jail officials say DiBernardino was released after posting bail.

There was no telephone listed for DiBernardino and authorities didn’t know Wednesday if he has a lawyer.
