VERNON, B.C. - A British Columbia motorcyclist who was allegedly racing along a highway at 300 kilometres an hour is behind bars in Kelowna.

Randy George Scott turned himself in after police issued a warrant in connection with a video of the incident that was anonymously posted on YouTube and he was charged for dangerous driving.

The video shows the speedometer needle climbing as the driver weaves in and out of traffic along a Vancouver Island highway.

Sannich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen has said 25-year-old Scott was tracked down as a result of tips generated by publicity related to the video.

The motorcycle is owned by an Esquimalt woman who was charged earlier, although Jantzen has said she was never believed to be the rider in the video.

Scott was scheduled to appear in court later Wednesday. (CKIZ)
