A man who led officers on a high-speed chase on a stolen motorcycle has been given a four-year sentence.
The man, Michael Scott Mosley, 29, entered guilty pleas before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to charges of evading arrest, grand theft and driving without a license. He was given a four-year sentence but will be furloughed from jail into the adult recovery program.
The chase began after sheriff’s deputy Jared Jacobs saw Mosely traveling at a high rate of speed on West Green Hill Road. The chase was joined by the Highway Patrol, with the trooper estimating Mosley was traveling 120 mph at one point on the motorcycle.
“I pursued the motorcycle for about 10 minutes into Cannon County before it wrecked,” Jacobs said, noting the chase crossed county lines. “During the pursuit, the motorcycle nearly struck a THP vehicle that assisted and also a vehicle on Cooper Highway.”
After Mosley crashed, it was determined he did not have a motorcycle license and the cycle was stolen out of Murfreesboro.
The chase is not the first for Mosley who entered a plea in late 2014 for leading lawmen on a high-speed chase on a four-wheeler. He was given probation for that incident.
