One of the videos was taken on the Kilpatrick Turnpike and the other on Broadway Extension.

Both videos had been taken down from the site Wednesday night.

A link to an eBay auction of the Corvette that ended Dec. 7 was posted with the YouTube videos.

The top bid of $15,000 did not meet the reserve price.

“I was extremely concerned with Mr. Replogle's reckless driving and thought the YouTube posts might encourage others to do the same thing in order to garner attention,” patrol Chief Van Guillotte said in a news release. “Our roadways are absolutely no place for this type of dangerous driving behavior or stunts.”

West said he didn't know if anyone was in the car with Replogle when he made the videos.

Replogle did not return a message seeking comment Wednesday.
