Motorcyclist arrested after video that appears to show him speeding at 186 mph goes viral

A motorcyclist turned himself into Canadian police earlier this week, after a video that seems to show him traveling at speeds up to 186 mph on a highway in British Columbia went viral.

Randy George Scott, 25, surrendered to authorities at the Kelowna, B.C., police department on Tuesday. Canadian law enforcement had issued a warrant for Scott's arrest earlier this month.

"The man allegedly responsible for the infamous YouTube video 'Victoria Highway Run 299km' is in custody," Kelowna police said in a statement. Scott was charged with reckless driving. The speed limit on the stretch of the the Trans-Canada Highway where Scott was allegedly speeding is 50 mph.

The video shot from a camera mounted on the bike--which appears to show Scott weaving in and out of cars near Saanich, Vancouver Island--has racked up more than 1 million views since being uploaded to YouTube in April.

The alleged incident occurred on April 6. Scott is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 16.
