A man who was clocked doing 83 mph on his motorcycle through a residential neighborhood faces charges of evading arrest after he ran from police.
The suspect, Darrell Ryan Evans, 28, is charged with evading arrest, reckless endangerment and driving on a revoked license.
According to McMinnville patrolman Paul Springer, he clocked Evans traveling 83 mph in a 30 mph zone.
“I saw a yellow Suzuki motorcycle traveling at a high rate of speed on Mullican Street,” Springer said, noting he turned on his blue lights and fell in behind the motorcyclist after clocking him on radar.
Springer said the motorcycle did not stop for his lights, the driver instead running the stop sign at the intersection of Mullican and Caldwell streets.
“He then turned left and lost control of the cycle in the grass and fled on foot,” Springer recalled, noting Evans was eventually taken into custody on the charges.
A check of his license revealed it had been revoked since 2004. Evans is set for a hearing before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke this Tuesday afternoon.
