A 32-year-old Billings man accused of driving 134 mph while under the influence of alcohol was charged Monday in Justice Court.

Shaun Kachina Bell appeared in court by video from the county jail on a felony charges of driving under the influence and criminal endangerment and misdemeanor counts of driving without a valid driver’s license, driving without proof of insurance and speeding.

He is being held at the Yellowstone County Jail on a $15,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned on June 21 in District Court.

Bell is accused of driving a Dodge Magnum at excessive speed west on Highway 312 on Sunday at about 10:30 p.m.

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Kyle Hayter said his radar gun clocked Bell’s car at 134 mph in a 50 mph zone. Hayter followed Bell into city limits and pulled Bell over on Main Street near Pemberton Lane.

There was man passed out in the passenger side of the car, and both men appeared to be intoxicated, Hayter indicated.

Although Bell was unable to provide a driver’s license, Hayter ran a background check with Bell's name and date of birth and found he had active warrants, three DUI convictions and a suspended driver’s license.
