LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man gave an unusual excuse for speeding early Monday morning, according to an arrest report.

Police say 30-year-old Detrick L. Williams was clocked via radar driving 100 mph in a 55 mph zone on I-64, shortly after 1 a.m.

According to the arrest report, an officer began following Williams in a police cruiser with lights and sirens activated, but Williams initially refused to stop. Williams eventually stopped on I-64, near 3rd Street.

When police confronted Williams, he allegedly told the officer that he knew he was driving at 100 mph, but he was only doing so "because his tire was flat."

Police arrested Williams and charged him with speeding 26 mph or more over the speed limit and reckless driving, according to court documents.
