CHP stops motorist suspected of speeding three times in an hour

The California Highway Patrol alleges that a Hayward woman just wouldn't slow down after twice being stopped for going over 100 mph.

Officers stopped Lynne Kathleen Cahill-Gomez three times Saturday night on Highway 70 in Sutter and Yuba counties. She was clocked on radar going 103 mph, 105 mph and finally 76 mph in a 55 mph-zone, officers said.

The three traffic stops all occurred within an hour starting at 8:10 p.m. at northbound Highway 70 near Kempton Road.

The first two times Cahill-Gomez was issued citations and sent on her way in her Hyundai sport utility vehicle. The third time, due to her disregard of public safety, the officer determined she was subject to arrest for reckless driving.

After what the CHP said was a brief struggle, Cahill-Gomez, 53, was arrested and booked into Yuba County Jail, according to a CHP news release.
