Former "Idol" star Sanjaya caught speeding

The Washington State Patrol says former "American Idol" finalist Sanjaya Malakar was caught driving 110 mph on Interstate 405 outside Seattle at Kirkland.

He was stopped about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday and given a $411 ticket, according to The Associated Press.

Trooper Dan MacDonald told The Seattle Times there was no one else on the freeway at the time so Malakar does not face a reckless endangerment charge.

The 20-year-old singer from Federal Way gained fame four years ago on the Fox talent show.
