A Madison man caught going more than twice the legal speed limit on the Beltline early Saturday morning told the deputy he was speeding because he had to go to the bathroom.

Daniel Zong, 24, was clocked at 119 mph on the 55 mph speed limit Beltline, stopped at about 12:55 a.m. by a Dane County Sheriff's deputy in the northbound lanes near Old Sauk Road.

Zong was driving a 2007 Toyota sedan, said spokeswoman Elise Schaffer.

The ticket will cost Zong $515.50 and six points, along with a mandatory court appearance.

The deputy was working thanks to a special traffic grant deployment over the weekend. The next such deployment begins on Thursday night and will continue Friday and Saturday nights.
