As the officer approached the motorcyclist, he sped off.

A pursuit ensued and speeds exceeding 50 miles-per-hour.

    This guy is extremely stupid. Can’t he just be sentenced to life in prison based on his stupidity???

    Stupid isn’t the right word to describe this a-hole! Take away the motorcycle and sell it to someone with a license and some maturity. It’s creeps like this that give bikers a bad image. What was he riding? Couldn’t have been a sport bike if speeds were only 50 mph! Probably a bagger!

      Unfortunately they have part of this story wrong. It was not his motorcycle. It was a friends that he “borrowed”. q
