Plus he is a kid. They ain't ****in' with him unless he really was driving recklessly -- i.e. running over sidewalks, crossing eight cars at one, etc....
In the state of Virginia, 80 plus or twenty over is an automatic reckless driving ticket. The term "reckless" is arbitrary. At best he could get it reduced to an improper equipment conviction, but that is totally up to the judge. Even still, unless is odom is off by 8-10 miles...it's still reckless because it was in a 55 MPH zone.
