SCHENECTADY - A Schenectady man is heading to prison for driving 140 miles per hour while drunk and seriously injuring his passenger.

Not only that, prosecutors say Anton Hawkins recorded his antics on video.

Hawkins took a picture of his speedometer taken before the crash in Halfmoon last November.

Prosecutors say Hawkins lost control and flipped his car, ejecting his passenger.

He faces up to three years in prison.
