OF JUDGMENT: 10/25/2017

ATTORNEY FOR APPELLANT: MARCUS ROMMEL FOSTER (PRO SE).

DISTRICT ATTORNEY: BEN CREEKMORE.
IRVING, P.J., GREENLEE AND TINDELL, JJ.
Following a trial de novo, the Chickasaw County Circuit Court
found Marcus Rommel Foster guilty of speeding, driving
eighty-two miles per hour in a sixty-five miles-per-hour
zone, and sentenced him to pay a fine of $200 plus court
costs. We affirm.
Foster was charged with speeding on July 19, 2015. On October
14, 2015, the Chickasaw County Justice Court convicted him of
speeding. Foster appealed to the Chickasaw County Circuit
Court, which held a trial de novo on October 3, 2017.
Following trial, the court found Foster guilty of speeding
and fined him $200 plus court costs. Foster timely appealed.
At approximately 2 p.m. on July 19, 2015, Mississippi Highway
Safety Patrol Officer Matthew Eller observed Foster's
vehicle traveling southbound on Highway 45, in Chickasaw
County, Mississippi. Officer Eller's radar indicated that
Foster's vehicle was traveling in excess of the
sixty-five miles-per-hour speed limit at rate of eighty-two
miles per hour. Officer Eller proceeded to stop Foster's
vehicle and issued Foster a speeding citation. During trial,
Officer Eller testified that he received appropriate training
to use his radar detector and that he had properly calibrated
it on the day he stopped Foster.
Although unclear, Foster's various arguments on appeal
are seemingly premised on his claim that the State failed to
prove he committed the crime of speeding. Foster also claims
