NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio — A police officer in a Cleveland suburb posted a message on social media after ticketing an 18-year-old for driving 100 mph (161 kph) in a 65 mph (105 kph) zone.

The officer wrote on Facebook Sunday that he didn’t feel bad about writing the ticket because the teen needs to slow down before causing a fatal crash.
