Bryan Thompson, 23, was clocked by police going 120 mph in his Mustang on I-40 W. early Christmas morning, according to police reports, going twice the legal limit. Thompson then ran a red light after being unable to stop at the end of the exit ramp from I-24 to Shelby St. when the officer flashed his lights.
After police pulled him over at the 300 block of 4th Street, they asked Thompson how fast he was going, he replied, " No more than a 4500 lb. bullet waiting to kill someone."
Thompson attempted to conceal his identity by providing police with false identification. A search revealed he has a suspended license.
A small amount of marijuana, and a cup with rum were found by police inside the car.
Thompson, who told police that he was just trying to have fun, is being held on $28,500 bond in the Davidson County Jail.

A Powerball ticket sold at a supermarket in Zephyrhills, Fla., matched all six numbers selected Saturday night for the estimated $590.5 million prize. It's the highest Powerball jackpot in history.
