A Gastonia motorcyclist is being accused of weaving through traffic on Interstate 77 throughout the morning traffic rush. Troopers chased the motorcyclist, as the helicopter followed over the man. The driver was eventually stopped from dodging traffic, and placed in cuffs by Mooresville Police officers.
The questioning began with the 27-year-old man playing coy. He stated that he didn’t understand why he was being pulled over. However, it was later discovered that the chopper had been behind him the entire time. The man then stated that he was driving with a revoked license, and he now faces several charges including eluding arrest.
The Highway Patrol allegedly seized the man’s bike, and it appears as though it is not likely he is going to get it back. Further, the man was allegedly heading to work when the chase was over. Officers report that this is new for them.
This particular situation is very strange. First, the man stated that he was not aware that he was in a high speed chase, and second, he attempted to show up to work and act as though nothing happened.
Everyone makes mistakes. In this particular situation, the man should have simply pulled his bike over, and accepted the minimal charge he was given. It is a lot easier to deal with a charge that is simply a driving while license is revoked than to deal with an eluding arrest charge on top of that.
