27 brave Texans were nabbed crossing the 140-mph mark on public roads in 2018.”

“The fastest? The driver of a 2003 Porsche 911, stopped for doing 166 mph in a 75 mph zone on June 10 in rural Carson County. The most unlikely? A 2013 Ford F-150 clocked at 150 mph just outside Fort Worth.”

The second set of charges are related to the second interview Smollett had with police about the alleged attack later that day.”

Shannon Elizabeth is pictured here in Dish Dogs (2000), in an older collage by one of the masters, our own Brainscan

This film was released after American Pie (1999), but was actually filmed in 1998. Shannon obviously had some work done in between the two shoots.
