OTTAWA, Canada - A biker caught speeding incriminated himself after police used the video camera attached to his motorcycle as evidence to lay additional charges.

The biker raced by officers at the entrance of Gatineau Park in Canada.

MORE VIOLATIONS

Police eventually caught up to the biker and issued the rider a ticket for careless driving. Officers spotted a video camera the rider had mounted onto his bike.

The camera captured footage of the rider committing many highway safety violations, including zig-zagging across roads and driving at 160km/h on a street with a posted speed limit of 50km/h.

He was arrested and charged with nine counts of dangerous driving.

In an attempt to discourage others from driving wildly on public streets, police also posted excerpts of the video on its Facebook page.

You can view the video on the Ottawacitizen website.
