A motorist quite possibly saved a life by reporting a driver whose drinking

and speed were....perhaps....off the charts.....here in LaPorte County.

62 year old Grady Bobbitt was charged then later posted bond.

Friday afternoon...police say officers responded to a report of a reckless

driver on U.S 20 near U.S 35.

The investigation shows the South Bend man was westbound.....turned around and

headed eastbound....then stopped at a gas station at U.S 20 and State Road 39.

After taking off again....he was clocked at 104 miles per hour and stopped.

Capt. Mike Kellems says it's fortunate that nobody was injured or killed.....

Police say Bobbitt was making unsafe lane changes prior to being stopped.
