Bexar County lawmen were involved in a wild chase with a motorcyclist overnight, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.It began when a Bexar County deputy tried to pull over the motorcyclist at I-10 and New Braunfels for a routine traffic violation.
But the motorcyclists sped up, winding through the east side and downtown at speeds of up to 85 miles an hour.
He turned up I-10, got off at Fresno, and turned onto Hildebrand, eventually turning into Elsmere Pl, which he didn't realize is a dead end.
He jumped off of his motorcycle and tried to run onto the access road of I-10 when he was tazed by deputies and eventually captured.
Then detectives realized why he had run. He was loaded down with drugs, and also had a gun in his pocket.
The biker, in his twenties, will end up facing a stack of felony charges, far more serious than whatever the deputy wanted to ticket him for.
