A teenager clocked driving at 93 mph in a 45 mph zone told police he had to get home in time to catch the school bus.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

A judge had sentenced Ryan Henry, 18, to ride the bus to school after an earlier speeding conviction, and Henry said he was rushing home after going to a gas station to buy an energy drink, said Porter County Sheriff's Deputy Roger Bowles, who ticketed Henry.

Henry appeared to accelerate after passing a marked squad car, then turned into a driveway and shut off the lights to his 2001 Mustang, Bowles said.

Henry was given a ticket for misdemeanor reckless driving and ordered to appear in court April 16.

The Associated Press left a message Thursday at a number for the Henry family in Valparaiso, seeking a response.
