Kane says the Infiniti the teen was driving was impounded for seven days and he now has a court date.

Driving at 50 kilometers per hour or more over the speed limit is considered stunt driving.

A first-time conviction for a stunt driving charge includes a fine of at least $2000, seven demerit points, and the possibility of a two-year licence suspension.
