I was going about 80 mph and still accelerating on a 45 mph Lane when I saw a cop at a light stoped, as soon as I passed him he turned on his lights but he was to far behind to catch up. Then I arrived at a yellow but as i went passed, it turned red..I then pulled into a near by private neighborhood and parked my car and about 5 min later I was about to get out my car when a different cop than the one that was chasing me, pulls up behind me and I pretend like idk wats going on, but he pulls out his gun and asks me to get out as other units are arriving, they tell me they're looking for someone with a vehicle like mine but they aren't sure if it's me ,so they ask me to wait in car as the office who saw me speeding arrives. The officer then arrives and asks me if I was the guy he just saw speed by and I first answer no but then he said that he had been flagged down by sum vehicles that I had ran the red light ..I then confess that I had been speeding but I had never seen the cop chasing me, the officer replys that he believed me since he was to far behind but going ,90 and couldn't catch up ..they told me they weren't going to take me to jail but they charged me with recklessdriving
So what is your question? You admitted to speeding, and the officer was going 90 mph and couldn't catch up with you....that is reckless driving. What is your question.

I handle matters in Ventura all of the time. You need an attorney for this matter! This is far more serious than you think.

You should discuss this with an attorney with the benefit of attorney-client privilege. I don't know CA statutes, but if it was in NC, you could be charged with felony flee to elude.
From the information you have provided (going 80 in a 45 zone) it sounds like reckless driving. I am not sure what it is that you want to know.
