The Ada County Sheriff’s Office says Sgt. Mike Kinzel clocked the teen’s SUV going more than 25 miles per hour over the speed limit through a residential road north of Star last month.

Kinzel initially thought the driver would get a ticket or even possibly a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving. The driver was a 16-year-old boy who was running late.

“The boy owned up to his lousy decision making without being prompted,” the sheriff’s office said in a release.

The deputy said he was going to withold making a decision on a citation or a charge — as long as the teen wrote a report on the dangers of reckless driving.

The boy took the deal. Eight days later, “an exhaustively researched and well documented eight-page report arrived in Sgt. Kinzel’s email box.”

The sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook that the teen won’t be charged.
