Deputies: Brothers speeding 100+ mph through downtown Camden

CAMDEN, SC (WIS) - Kershaw County Sheriff's deputies arrested two brothers accused of riding their motorcycles more than 100 miles per hour through downtown Camden on Saturday night.

Adrian Michael Rogers, 43, and Spencer K. Rogers, 41, were arrested at about 7:45 p.m. Saturday. They are charged with speeding 26+ mph over the posted speed limit, a 6-point violation.

According to the Sheriff's Office, a deputy noticed the two motorcycles traveling together "at a very high rate of speed" near the intersection of Battleship Road and Highway 1. Using a radar gun, the deputy determined the motorcycles were traveling 110 miles per hour through a 40 mph zone.

The men pulled over after the deputy pulled in behind them with blue lights running.

After they stopped, the Sheriff's Office reports the brothers told the deputy they realized they were speeding but didn't know how fast they were going. When asked why they were going so fast, they told the deputy they were "just fooling around."

"While a speeding violation isn't normally newsworthy, the location of this incident and the speed involved is," said Sheriff James Matthews. "Fortunately, they didn't kill themselves or anyone else with their irresponsible actions."

The Rogers brothers were taken to the Kershaw County Detention Center. If found guilty, they could be fined $440.
