Suburban man busted for going 124 mph; father also charged
A 24-year old Naperville man faces multiple charges after police clocked him on radar driving 124 mph in a 45 mph zone, the fastest ever recorded in Naperville.
Described by police as “not unknown to us”, Konnor Burns first sped past police at 103 mph around 2 am last Sunday along Plainfield/Naperville Road between 75th & 87th Streets. Police tried to pull over the 2011 white Dodge Charger but Burns disappeared into neighborhoods before they could catch up with him. Moments later, he returned to the exact area he was clocked at 103 mph, this time going the other way at 124 mph.
Police drove directly to Burns’ residence to intercept him, in time to watch him walking into his home, according to police. Konnor’s father, 60-year old William Burns answered the front door in his underwear and claimed he was the driver of the vehicle. His story soon fell apart, according to police, when he mentioned he, “just woke up.”
William Burns faces charges of interfering with a police officer. Konnor Burns faces a number of charges in addition to speeding, including reckless driving, resisting arrest and driving under the influence.
