WAYNE CO. N.C. — A Chapel Hill man was arrested in Wayne County for going more than 100 miles per hour over the speed limit, WTVD reports.

Goldsboro Police Department learned drivers were street racing Nov. 18 around 12:30 a.m. on Highway 70.

When the officers arrived, a 2000 Chevrolet Camaro SS sped off.
