ALPHARETTA — The Alpharetta Police Department took two high-speed drivers off the roads over the weekend. Both were driving in excess of 110 miles per hour.

The first arrest came after clocking a driver on Ga. 400 north at 112 mph just after 7 p.m. Saturday.

The second arrest came after midnight after catching up to and stopping a young man for operating his motorcycle at 163 miles per hour.

That arrest also occurred on Ga. 400.

According to police officials, both drivers had their vehicles towed, were put in jail, and will face heavy fines if convicted.

“Those speeds are unacceptable and we will not tolerate dangerous drivers putting our community in danger,” police officials wrote on the police department’s Facebook page.
