Media release

On Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at 12:32 am, a Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputy was conducting speed enforcement on Interstate 5, near Highway 217. The deputy saw and heard a vehicle, a 2016 BMW M3, traveling south on Interstate 5 at an extremely high speed. The deputy used a speed measuring tool called a Lidar and learned that the vehicle was going 176 MPH.

The deputy told dispatch about the speeding vehicle by radio, gave a description of the vehicle, and asked for other deputies in the area to assist them. Another deputy was further south on Interstate 5, near the Nyberg Street exit, and could see the vehicle take the Nyberg Street exit.

Both deputies caught up to the vehicle as it was stopped on the off-ramp and pinned it in to prevent the driver from driving away.

The driver of the vehicle, 19-year-old Milo Schneider, cooperated with the deputies, was arrested for reckless driving, and was later lodged in the Washington County Jail.

During the investigation, Schneider told deputies at one point, he looked at his speedometer and saw it said he was going 183 MPH.
