Man Late For GODSMACK Concert Arrested After 110 Mph Ride reports that an Indianapolis man running late for a GODSMACK concert was arrested by a state trooper in western Indiana after fleeing the officer at 110 mph, authorities said.

John M. Leer, 24, was spotted Saturday night at about 5:50 p.m. after police received reports that a white, 1992 Honda was headed south on U.S. 41 from Sullivan at high speed, passing other vehicles in the media.

Trooper Brent Clark clocked the vehicle at 110 mph and tried to stop Leer without success.

"Seconds later, the driver attempted to pass another vehicle but lost control when he entered the grassy median," a state police report said.

"Further investigation revealed that Leer was driving to Evansville to see GODSMACK in concert. Leer was speeding because he was running late and didn't realize Evansville was that far away from Indianapolis."

Leer was held on Class D felony charges of resisting law enforcement and recklessness, state police said. He was also cited for speeding and having an open container of alcohol.
