QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) - State police say an 18-year-old man was clocked driving his sport motorcycle more than 140 mph on an upstate New York highway.

Troopers tell The Post-Star of Glens Falls that Isaac Jones of Hudson Falls, New York, was traveling at 141 mph in the southbound lanes of Interstate 87, the Adirondack Northway, in the Warren County town of Queensbury.

Troopers pulled him over Saturday after he had gotten off the highway at Exit 18 in Queensbury, 50 miles north of Albany.

He was ticketed for speeding and sent to the county jail. He has since been released on bail.

Police are also investigation whether Jones was involved in a high-speed motorcycle chase with sheriff's deputies in neighboring Washington County last week.
