'Idol' Singer Sanjaya Busted For Speeding Over 100 MPH

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.

    The 20 year old singer, in the feathery way, showed flame four years ago on the "American Idiot" TV show. That is how that last line should read. My first thought was, who cares about him??

    I lived in the Juanita area of Kirkland for years and know the area well. My question is: Why is this even a story in eastern Carolina, when there are much more important local things to report on?

    Anonymous - That's funny how that story is not posted on Fox news. Why do you make unfounded claims and misinform people? That is what CNN and PMSNBC do. You must watch that hogwash.
