Actor Chris Tucker has briefly put in McDuffie County Jail, Georgia, Sunday April 16, 2005, after being clocked at a 109 miles per hour on a stretch of Georgia's Interstate 20, nearly 40 mph over the speed limit, and then leading police on a high-speed chase. The Georgia State Patrol even said the actor had once drove his 2005 Bentley up to 120.

Georgia State Patrol spokesperson Larry Schnall, in addition, explained that a trooper had at first tried to stop Tucker's car, but he continued to drive even faster, pushing the trooper to radioed ahead to other troopers and asked them to stop Tucker's vehicle. And so as the trooper continued to pursue him, Tucker continued to accelerate until he hit a rough patch and was "forced to slow down."

Once stopped, Tucker was ordered out of his car at gunpoint, then arrested and taken to the Warren County facility for processing. Thus, he was charged with reckless driving and fleeing to elude, each of which carries a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a $1,000 fine. The star, however, was released after posting bail.
