DeKALB – A DeKalb teenager was charged Wednesday morning with driving more than 100 mph on Peace Road.
Noe A. Mascote, 18, of the 300 block of Hickory Street in DeKalb, was charged with speeding, fleeing to elude and possession of marijuana after a police officer clocked his car at 102 mph on Peace Road, police said. The incident happened about 8 a.m.
DeKalb County Sheriff Chief Deputy Gary Dumdie said an officer at the intersection of Barber Greene and Peace roads witnessed Mascote speed through the intersection headed north on Peace Road as the light was changing from yellow to red. When the officer pulled out, Mascote sped up to 102 mph in the 55 mph zone as he passed Bethany Road.
The officer did not accelerate when Mascote’s speed entered triple digits, but slowed and kept Mascote’s car in sight, Dumdie said.
Mascote then turned on to Hathway Drive and entered a subdivision, Dumdie said. Dumdie said the officer searched the subdivision and located Mascote in his car in a driveway.
