HONOLULU  — A Marine with a history of street racing is being held on $200,000 bail after high-speed driving and two crashes.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that 22-year-old Sean Michael Shipe was charged Saturday with criminal property damage and terroristic threatening.

Police say Shipe was stopped for speeding Thursday afternoon on the H-3 freeway but swerved his car toward an officer on foot and took off for Kaneohe.

Police say Shipe turned around in Kaneohe, drove toward Honolulu on the Pali Highway, reversed his car and struck a solo bike officer.

Shipe crashed near Castle Junction and was arrested. The final crash led to traffic congestion for hours as police investigated.

Shipe is stationed at Kaneohe Bay. He pleaded no contest in 2013 and 2014 to street racing.
