Well, one New Jersey man had an interesting weekend.

That's because on Saturday at around 8:00a on his way home from the New England area, he was spotted by police aircraft traveling south on Interstate 95 doing a rather speedy 142 mph. His vehicle of choice was the 700+ horsepower Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Trackhawk.

Eric Joseph was charged with Reckless Operation and is slated to appear in a New Hampshire court on September 23. He doesn't seem too concerned, if we're honest, given his rather toothy smile in his mugshot.

So, I've got to ask: Is this AWESOME or AWFUL?

How would you punish someone driving at that rate of speed? Loss of license? Time served? Something else?
