MANCHESTER - A Bedford man was arrested for reckless operation Friday after he allegedly drove 115 miles per hour past a state trooper on Interstate 93, according to state police.

Michael A. MgRdichian, Jr., 31, sped past a cruiser driven north by Trooper Juan Infante around 8:30 p.m., passing him on the right, according to a press release. The trooper clocked the vehicle at 115 miles per hour, and again at 110 miles per hour as it changed lanes, police said.

As the 2006 Ford Crown Victoria came upon slower traffic, the driver then "had to brake aggressively to avoid a collision" with other cars, the release stated.

The trooper immediately stopped the vehicle and arrested MgRdichian for reckless operation. He was released on bail and will be arraigned on Feb. 10.
