CHP: motorcyclist crashes bike after 130 MPH pursuit called-off

VICTORVILLE, Calif. ( A motorcyclist accused of reaching 130 MPH while trying to outrun CHP officers was arrested Monday afternoon.

CHP initiated the chase just before 12:30 p.m on the I-15 northbound freeway near Highway 138, after the rider refused to yield for not having license plates, and driving in excess of the speed limit.

The erratic driver was lane-splitting and driving reckless, causing the pursuit to be called off, CHP Sgt. Weichers told Victor Valley News.

Moments later, with no CHP in pursuit, the rider crashed and ditched the white-and-blue motorcycle as he exited Nisqualli Road.

A witness passing by the single-motorcycle crash called 911 and told emergency dispatch that a person crashed a motorcycle and was walking away.

Deputies from the Victorville Police Department and California Highway Patrol responded and arrested the suspect at the intersection of Balsam and Nisqualli Roads.

Officials discovered a water-bong and a propane fuel torch inside the black backpack worn by the suspect.

Sgt. Todd Weichers said the suspect will be booked for Felony Evading and reckless driving.

No injuries were reported as a result of this incident.
