A Racine man and woman were arrested early Sunday morning and charged with drag racing in Mount Pleasant. 

Mount Pleasant Police say shortly before 7 a.m., an officer observed two vehicles racing toward him northbound on Green Bay Road, just south of Braun Road. 

The vehicles, a Toyota Avalon and a Cadillac Deville, were traveling 109 mph in a 55 mph zone,  according to police.

Police say the driver of the Avalon stopped for the officer, but the Cadillac turned east onto Green Bay Road and was apprehended by second officer.
