LAKE ORION, Mich. (AP) - A suburban Detroit motorcyclist was apparently fast enough to leave police in the dust during a chase, but not swift enough to stop from bragging about it on Facebook.

Lake Orion police say 33-year-old Michael Brown, of Rochester Hills, turned himself in on Tuesday, three weeks after the incident. He’s charged with fleeing police and reckless driving.

Police say an officer pulled up to Brown outside a restaurant after seeing loud motorcycle maneuvers in the street. Brown sped off and the officer eventually stopped pursuing him.

Police say Brown boasted on Facebook that he was going “140 in a 35 mph” zone. He added: “#nojailthisweekend.” Someone shared the post with police.

Brown doesn’t have a listed phone number and couldn’t be reached for comment Wednesday. He’s due in court Aug. 2.
