A man has been bound to the grand jury on multiple charges after he slammed his motorcycle into a house while trying to outrun the law.The suspect, Terry Ray Barnes, 29, waived his right to a preliminary hearing in General Sessions Court and was bound to the grand jury on charges of evading arrest, possession of methamphetamine, driving on a suspended license, and reckless driving.He was hit with charges as deputies were responding to a disturbance call on Locke Bend Road.“There was a motorcycle making a disturbance in the area,” said sheriff’s deputy Lynn Cannon, noting he spotted the motorcycle on Old Rock Island Road and fell in behind it. “It continued to gain speed, at some points over 80 mph in a 45 zone on Hennessee Bridge Road.”The deputy flipped on his blue lights and siren and tried to pull the suspect over, prompting the suspect to go even faster.“The motorcycle continued to gain speed and lost control after a very short distance,” Cannon reported. “It ran off the roadway, through a yard on Hennessee Bridge Road, striking a house before coming to rest.”Barnes was captured following the crash.
