A juvenile driver who had three other youths in his car – the youngest, a 7-year-old -- has been arrested and charged with going 80 mph in a 35 mph zone as he street-raced another teen in Alpharetta, police said.

The incident occurred shortly before 2 p.m. Tuesday as Alpharetta police officers with speed-detecting gear monitored traffic on Old Milton Parkway near Roswell Street, according to a police report.

One of the officers recorded two vehicles approaching at high speed – a black 2011 Dodge Challenger going 80 mph, and a silver 2006 Dodge Charger going 74 mph, police said. The drivers were motioned to pull over, and they did.

The motorists were two males, ages 18 and 16, and the younger driver had three minors with him in his car – ages 7, 14 and 15, police said. Both drivers were placed under arrest, handcuffed and checked for weapons and contraband. Also, their mothers were called to the scene.

Joshua Michael Gaudineer, 18, of Odessa, Fla., and the 16-year-old whose name was not released because he is a minor, were each charged with reckless driving, racing and speeding, police said. The juvenile also was charged with violating the terms of his Class “D” driver’s license.

The juvenile was released to his parents, while Gaudineer was handed over to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office.

How about eliminating the police dept in Milton and contract with Alpharetta for their police dept to take over in Milton.

That would be great, but only one problem. Residence in Milton still believe they are about the law, and do not want the law enforced on them. So it would not matter who does the Policing.

Alpharetta was at one time as lawless as Milton is today. Until a new Mayor was elected and he made changes.

Do any of you remember Buck Rudasil, chief of police and Q,A. Wills Mayor and traffic judge of Alpharetta during the 1950's. If you do remember, you know what can happen. These two individuals made believers of those who felt they were above the law. But we have to have people who will equally enforce the law.

Do not believe you can find two individuals from mayor, counsel, city mgr,and police chief, who could carry water for Rudasil and Wills, much less perform as admirably in enforceing the law.
