Oct. 1, 2013 at 2:40 PM

NORWOOD, Mass., Oct. 1 (UPI) -- Police in Massachusetts said a man accused of exceeding 100 mph was using one hand to videotape his speedometer.

Norwood Police Officer Kevin Grasso said the man was spotted driving faster than 100 mph around 10 p.m. Friday and was pulled over, the Boston Globe reported Tuesday.

The man, whose name was not released, told police he had been using one hand to take video of his speedometer so potential buyers would have proof of the car's top speed.

The driver was issued summonses on charges of speeding, impeded operation, and reckless operation.

"The asking price of the vehicle may go up accordingly," police said in a Facebook post referencing the potential fines faced by the man.
