A man with a disregard for the speed limit was indicted last Friday by the Warren County Grand Jury for driving 120 mph in a 45 mph zone.

Rio Cortez Hubbard, 30, was indicted for speeding, evading arrest and reckless endangerment.

According to the warrant for his arrest, the incident took place Feb. 7 when DeKalb County authorities were in pursuit of a white car that was traveling toward McMinnville on Smithville Highway.

Warren County law enforcement was waiting for the vehicle at Highway 56 North Church of Christ, which is in the Rolling Hills area.

“Sgt. Danny Ferrell was sitting at Highway 56 North Church when he clocked the white car at 120 mph,” the arrest warrant states. “Sgt. Ferrell tried to stop the white car and speeds reached 130 mph. When they got to the city limits, city officers had spike strips and the subject hit the strips, deflating all four tires. The subject pulled into Gateway where he was taken into custody.”

Booking information lists Hubbard as having a Smithville address. It’s not known why he was running from officers in DeKalb County.
