Troopers: Montana man clocked at 134 mph gets DUI

A Montana man faces a felony charge of driving under the influence after authorities say a state trooper clocked him driving 134 mph in a 50 mph zone.

The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/KCdsRz) 32-year-old Shaun Kachina Bell of Billings made an initial appearance in Justice Court Monday on the DUI charge, along with felony criminal endangerment and misdemeanor counts of speeding and driving without a license or proof of insurance.

His bail was set at $15,000.

Prosecutors allege Bell was speeding in a Dodge Magnum late Sunday on Highway 312 outside Billings. Trooper Kyle Hayter followed him into city limits and pulled him over. The trooper said there was a man passed out in the passenger seat.

Court records say Bell has three previous DUI convictions.
