An 18-year-old man allegedly thought he was being “followed” early Thursday before he was cited for reckless driving for topping 105 mph along Interstate 94, according to Michigan State Police.

“Upon contact, the driver from Harper Woods stated he thought ‘someone was following him,’ ” officials said in a statement. “He was correct. It was an Michigan State Police Trooper.”

The man was spotted driving a 2008 Ford Fusion around 4:45 a.m. in the left lane of eastbound I-94 near Metro Parkway in Clinton Township, according to police. Radar initially clocked him traveling at 99 mph.
