A Naperville man who allegedly was clocked driving 111 mph through a 45 mph forest preserve told a patrol officer he was in a hurry to “try to go have sex with a girl he liked.”

Zachary P. Ramirez, 21, of the 1400 block of Fairway Drive was caught speeding around 2:06 a.m. Saturday through Springbrook Prairie Forest Preserve, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Police Sgt. Gregg Bell told the paper an officer saw Ramirez's 1994 Honda Prelude run a red light at 75th Street and Plainfield-Naperville Road, then run a stop sign. Another officer pulled him over and asked him why he was traveling so fast.

For sex, he said.

Police also allegedly found 0.2 grams of marijuana during a car search. Ramirez faces charges of speeding 40 mph or more over the limit, according to the Sun-Times. He also was charged with possession of 2.5 grams or less of marijuana, reckless driving, disobeying a traffic light and disobeying a stop sign.
