A driver made a quick getaway when speed cameras spotted him going 235 kph in a Dodge Challenger on an expressway in Tokyo, but the law finally chased him down more than two years later.

Yoshimune Shirai, 41, was arrested on March 1 after allegedly driving at the breakneck speed, which is 135 kph over the legal limit, in his American muscle car on the Chuo Expressway in Tokyo's Kunitachi around 4:15 a.m. on Jan. 29, 2016, police said.

The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) arrested Shirai, a company employee of Tokyo’s Setagaya Ward, on suspicion of violating the Road Traffic Law.

The suspect is denying the charges, saying that it is not clear whether he was the culprit in the driver’s seat, according to the MPD’s traffic section.

Shirai’s Dodge Challenger was identified in images captured by the Orbis automatic speeding monitoring system.

The vehicle was driven without front number plates, an additional offense that the police plan to refer to prosecutors.

According to the police, more than five cases of overspeeding apparently involving the same Dodge Challenger have been identified on public roads in Tokyo and the Metropolitan Expressway since 2015.

The Orbis also captured the driver waving his middle finger at the camera. Police are investigating those cases with Shirai as the suspect.
