ASHLAND — State police arrested a Massachusetts man Sunday after they say they  clocked him driving 116 mph in a 70 mph zone, blowing by two state police troopers and causing their cruisers to shake back and forth.

 The driver, identified as Andrew Tham, 19, of Middleton, was arrested on a charge of reckless operation.

The troopers were parked at a crossover on Interstate 93 about 7 a.m. Sunday when, they say, Tham's 2016 Subaru Forrester flew by them, going so fast that the wind caused both cruisers to shake.

Trooper First Class Eric Shirley pulled out in an attempt to stop the car and, on closing in on it, clocked it at 116 mph.

 Tham is to appear for arraignment on March 24  in 2nd Circuit Court - District Division - Plymouth.

Tham was transported to the New Hampton Police Department.

He was released and is schedule to be arraigned in Plymouth District Court at 8 a.m. March 24.
