Motorcycle man crashes while running from law

A man has been charged with evading arrest after he tried to outrun the law on a motorcycle and failed.
The man, Corry Shane Judkins, 39, crashed as he tried to give sheriff’s Sgt. Billy Joe Crouch the shake and is now charged with evading arrest, DUI and driving without a license.
The chase began at Mountain View Park when the deputy saw him speeding and tried to pull him over.
“The motorcycle sped away onto Manchester Highway where it turned left on Morrison-Viola Road (Five-Mile Road),” said Crouch, noting he discontinued the pursuit due to the high speed. “About 11 minutes later, investigator Jason Rowland came across the motorcycle wrecked on Morrison-Viola Road.”
Judkins sustained multiple injuries and was transported to Manchester Medical Center for treatment. A subsequent blood draw revealed he had meth in his system and a check of his license found he did not have a motorcycle endorsement on his driver license. When asked why he didn’t stop, Judkins reportedly told the deputy, “I made a mistake. I’m sorry for not stopping.”
