The Washington State Patrol says former "American Idol" star Sanjaya Malakar was caught speeding 110 mph on Interstate 405 outside of Seattle at Kirkland.
He was stopped about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday and given a $411 ticket.
Trooper Dan MacDonald told The Seattle Times there was no one else on the freeway at the time so Malakar does not face a reckless endangerment charge.
The 20-year-old singer from Federal Way gained fame four years ago on the "American Idol" talent show.
