Driver Jailed for Speeding

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A Billings man charged for driving 134 miles per hour in a 50 mile-per-hour zone, while intoxicated, is sentenced in district court.

According to court documents, the Montana Highway Patrol stopped 33-year-old Shaun Bell on Highway 312 east of Billings for speeding back in June. When the trooper approached the car, Bell appeared to be under the influence and a man was passed out in the passenger seat. Bell was initially ticketed with speeding and DUI. But, those charges were dismissed due to a plea agreement. Bell will serve five years in the Department of Corrections for felony criminal endangerment and driving without a license or insurance.
