LOGAN, Utah (AP) - A Utah man has been sentenced to seven days in jail after a high-speed chase that he blamed on a bathroom emergency.

Thirty-nine-year-old Jeffrey Laub told a judge Monday that he ate something that upset his stomach and was racing to get to a rest area in Logan Canyon.

The Herald Journal reports ( <;) 1st District Judge Thomas Willmore called the explanation "one of the worst stories" he ever heard.

The judge pointed out that Laub passed several outhouses while he led a Utah Highway Patrol trooper on a chase last spring that reached 111 mph.

Laub, who's from Garden City, pleaded guilty in August to failure to stop and impaired driving.
