SOUTH YARMOUTH (CBS) – A mystery motorcyclist on Cape Cod has captured video of himself doing at least 120 mph in a 35 MPH school zone in South Yarmouth last week.

He was so proud of his activity, he posted it on YouTube. Police were not amused.

“That’s very serious, it’s very stupid, and he’s going to pay for it,” said Deputy Chief Steven Xiarhos.

One video was shot on Station Avenue near the high school, but the motorcyclist also posted two other clips. One looks like it’s on Route 28 and the other appears to be on a nearby highway. In those two, you can see the motorcycle darting in and out of traffic, leaving other motorists in the dust.

When police found the video, they linked to it on their Facebook page.

Tips started coming in – and within hours whoever posted all the videos had taken each of them offline.

“He knows that the heat is on,” said Deputy Chief Xiarhos. “It’s not a game we need him to obviously stop doing what he’s doing before he kills himself.”
