Trooper discontinues pursuit of motorcycle because of safety concerns


Red Bank, SC – A SC State Trooper discontinued a high-speed pursuit of a motorcycle shortly before 11:00 a.m. Friday after becoming concerned that the fleeing motorcyclist would cause a crash that could injure the public.

According to Lance Corporal David Jones, spokesman for the patrol’s troop one of the midlands, the trooper tried to stop the cyclist for speeding when the rider refused to pull over and instead sped away.

The chase began in central Lexington County and continued through the Pine Grove area toward Red Bank. Eventually, the trooper decided to terminate the chase after the rider showed a complete disregard for the safety of other motorist on the road.

The SC Highway Patrol is continuing to investigate the chase and is actively working to identify and locate the motorcycle and its rider. Once located, that rider will be charged with failure to stop for a blue light. He may also face other charges pending the outcome of the patrol’s investigation.
