KIRKLAND, Wash. - Life in the fast lane got expensive for former American Idol contestant Sanjaya Malakar.

He received a $411 ticket for speeding on the Eastside.

The Washington State Patrol says Malakar drove 110 miles per hour on Interstate 405 in Kirkland early Tuesday morning 50 mph over the speed limit.

No other cars were around, so Malakar was not arrested for reckless endangerment.

Drugs and alcohol were not factors in the case.
