B.C. man acquitted for speeding video sought by police again
A Victoria man who once beat high-profile charges of dangerous driving is again on the police radar after his Lamborghini was impounded for going twice the posted speed limit.
Police say they want to talk to Randy Scott after the driver of a white Lamborghini, registered to Scott’s mother, was caught going 80 kilometres over the posted speed limit on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Scott was previously charged with dangerous driving in 2013 after a video of a motorcycle racing nearly 300 kilometres an hour through Greater Victoria went viral, gaining upward of 1.7-million hits on YouTube.
That bike was also registered to Scott’s mother, and while police believed he shot the video, they couldn’t prove that he was driving the bike at the time and Scott was acquitted.
Last month, his Lamborghini was seized and searched in a firearms investigation. On May 8, the same day he got the vehicle back, Scott posted a photo on Facebook of the car surrounded by Victoria Police with the caption “Buh Bye Lambo,” before it was impounded for seven days.
He was also slapped with a $483 fine.
Scott’s mother came to pick up the $120,000 vehicle on Saturday and hours later, he posted again on Facebook, “She’s home sweet home now.”
In another comment, Scott indicated he knows police are looking for him.
“Cops are searching for me tryin to give me a prohibition so I won’t be caught drivin it for a bit,” the post read.
The Superintendant of Motor Vehicles is now reviewing the case. Scott could face a driving ban of up to 24 months.
