Man arrested for driving 150 MPH in rented Lamborghini



On November 4, 2021, at approximately 9:14 a.m., Officer Ian Hamm with the Boulder City Police Department, Boulder City, Nevada, was stopped in the median of Interstate 11, near Mile Marker 12, when he noticed a white sports car traveling toward him at high speed. Officer Hamm estimated the vehicle’s speed to be in excess of 125 miles per hour, and locked the vehicle on LIDAR at 150 MPH.
Officer Hamm conducted a traffic stop on the car — a rented Lamborghini Huracan Evo — and arrested its driver, an Illinois carpenter named James Rice… complete with a somewhat bizarre rehearsed speech about calculus and the energy of a vehicle in motion.
Speech aside, James D. Rice was arrested for reckless driving… however, as Real World Police was first to uncover and report, many of Nevada’s highest-speed speeding tickets are ultimately pleaded down to non-moving violations, and Mr. Rice’s reckless driving charge was no exception. James D. Rice ultimately pleaded out to the equivalent of a parking violation. He was required to take “level 2 traffic school,” which a court employee confirmed to Real World Police is an online class, and Mr. Rice had to pay over $1,000 in fines and fees. He has a non-moving violation on his record.
Drive safe, folks.
