COLUMBUS, Ind. (WISH) - Indiana State Police said a motorcyclist drove faster than 100 mph, fled from police and was seen doing a wheelie before crashing and being arrested.
ISP officials said Columbus resident Zachary E. Emberton, 23, was intoxicated while driving a motorcycle on Ind. 46 on the west side of Columbus. He eventually drove into Brown County, where police said he did a U-turn and sped away eastbound after a trooper tried pulling him over.
A trooper clocked Emberton going 105 mph in a 55 mph zone, and at one point a trooper was driving 130 mph trying to catch up with him.
Although the trooper lost sight of Emberton, a Columbus police officer found him, and Emberton crashed.
After being taken to Columbus Regional Hospital for treatment, Emberton was arrested on preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement with a vehicle, operating while intoxicated with a prior conviction, operating while intoxicated causing endangerment, operating while intoxicated with a BAC of .08-.14 and reckless driving. He was taken to Bartholomew County Jail.
