A man who eluded law enforcement on a speeding motorcycle Wednesday night was later apprehended and charged with a felony count of fleeing to evade arrest, Baileyton police Officer John Jones said in a report.
Sylas J. Bradford, 22, of 3840 Ottway Road, was also charged with a felony count of reckless endangerment and driving on a revoked license.
Officer Jones stated in his report that he saw a motorcycle speeding on Horton Highway, and when an officer activated the blue lights and siren on his patrol car, "The motorcycle sped it up [and] continued on passing cars in curves at the golf course."
The motorcycle turned onto Millers Chapel Road.
"Police knew the ID of the rider and discontinued pursuit and went to [the] defendant's house," the report said.
Bradford allegedly told officers "that he ran because he didn't have a driver's license," the report said.
A records check showed that Bradford's driver license was revoked in October 2011 in Greene County, the report said.
Bond was set at $15,000. Bradford's first General Sessions Court appearance is scheduled on Friday.
