Speeding motorcyclist sentenced to 34 months in jail

A 28 year old man from Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré who has been treating Quebec roads and highways as his personal playground for the past two years is going to prison.

Tommy Bar-Longuépée pleaded guilty yesterday to several charges of speeding, dangerous driving, and fleeing from police and has been sentenced to 34 months in jail, has lost his drivers' permit for five years and has had his motorcycle, his helmet and his leathers confiscated.

Police had been searching for Bar-Longuépée for two years following a series of high speed incidents, including on at least one occasion, where he was clocked at 300-kilometres-per-hour.

He was arrested in August after a passerby was finally able to snap a photo of the licence plate on his bike.

Police tracked him down and found his motorcycle hidden in a backyard shed of his father's home.

They also went through his computer and found dozens of videos he had taken of himself and several friends speeding and pulling highways wheelie's in the Quebec City region.

Four of his friends, part of a group that called themselves the " Speed Demons", were also arrested and are awaiting the start of their trials on similar charges.
