Gore III Does 100 -- in a Prius?! Huh?

7/5/2007 12:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

When Al Gore III was busted for speeding and drug possession yesterday, people were shocked that the former VP's son was arrested. Even more shocking ... who knew you could jam a Prius to 100 mph?!?!
Al Gore III, Toyota Prius
The eco-friendly status symbols are known for being good for the environment -- not for shredding up the asphalt. A Car and Driver magazine test back in 2004 showed the Prius took a whopping 39.6 seconds to hit 100 mph. Not exactly Jeff Gordon material.

If Lil' Gore really wanted to speed, he should have gone with a Bugatti Veyron -- it hits the century mark in 5.5 seconds!

yes, i for one would do whatever was needed (w or w/o money) to keep my kid ALIVE and to keep him from hurting others. even if that meant he had to go to rehab.
prison is one thing---it turns non-serious offenders into hardened criminals--so i'd keep him out of there if i had clout...but he'd definitely have to do rehab. maybe take his license away for a loooooong time.

is it me or does this guy lookslightly Downes Syndrome-y (no offence to anyone please)
maybe it's just the psych condition or meds he's on...

So is daddy & mommy going to get their adult 24 year old child out of this mess again ????
I certainly hope not ! Obviously, he needs help and I don't mean re-hab...Put him in JAIL and we'll see how big he is !! He's a punk who has been going the wrong direction since day one !! Lock him up !! He will eventually kill someone and then still walk hanging on to mommy & daddy ! What a loser !! Get him gone !!

Dude ... have you ever actually driven a Prius? Those things can MOVE. I used to date a girl in Arizona while I was living in LA, and regularly went up to 110, sometimes hitting 120 on the 10 eastbound in my 2004 Prius. Rock-steady steering, low road noise. Toyota's the world's new #1 auto manufacturer for a reason.

Funny, when it's a Democrat's child in trouble, it's a "Private Family Matter" but when it's a Republican's child its blown way out of proportion and smeared all over the place.
Is this a Big Double Standard or What!!!

With Freedom Comes Responsibility. With Maturity Comes a Clue. Even if we in America-- or most anywhere else in the retarded world--are not free to smoke pot and laugh a lot--unless we do it in a safe place---this does not mean we can jump in a car—whatever the brand—in the wee hours of the morning and tear up the freeway like a Banshee because we think we are the Center of the Universe and feeling that it is a very lonely place to be. Grow Up--Get a Grip--Don't Be a Dip--Don't Flip—Get Hip—Have a Chip—But what ever you do in California—Don’t Tempt the C.H.P!

If it is truly Amy Sedaris posting I just want to say thank you so much for your awesome book. I have made many of the recipes and have even stopped taking Vicodin from my friend's bathrooms thanks to you.

WE KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT OPRI!    

TO AL GORE'S SON:

# 1- WHEN YOUR FATHER TALKED ABOUT PEOPLE GOING GREEN, HE DIDN'T MEAN POT, YOU LOSER!

#2- HOW MUCH ENERGY DID YOU WASTE BY GOING 100?! AND I BET YOU ALSO SPEED WHILE DRIVING YOUR NON-HYBRID, GAS GUZZLING MOSNTER OF AN SUV, RIGHT?

OBVIOUSLY YOUR FATHER, AL GORE-- CARES MORE ABOUT HIS GLOBAL WARMING CRAP, AND NOT ENOUGH ABOUT GIVING YOU SOME GUIDANCE!
FOR YOU TO BE DRIVING STONED AND THAT FAST--DAMN, HE NEEDS A STIFFER JAIL SENTENCE THAN PARIS HILTON! YOU IRRESPONSIBLE MENTAL MIDGET!!!!

YOUR FATHER, AL GORE, YOU SAYS HE WANTS TO KEEP THIS A PRIVATE MATTER?!
OH, HELL TO THE NO~!!!!!!!!!!
WE WILL FIND OUT EVERYTHING, YOU CAN COUNT ON IT, AND YOU WILL PAY YOUR DEBT TO SOCIETY, AND YOUR FATHER WILL BE EXPOSED FOR THE POOR EXCUSE OF A HUMAN BEING THAT HE IS!
HOLLA!
