A man who led authorities on a high-speed chase through two counties on a stolen motorcycle has been bound to the grand jury.The suspect, Toby Lynn Young, 34, waived his right to a preliminary hearing in General Sessions Court and was bound to the grand jury on charges of evading arrest, reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, driving on a suspended license, and grand theft.Sheriff’s investigators say Young stole a 2005 Yamaha motorcycle from a residence on Harrison Ferry Road. The stolen cycle was later spotted by investigator Kevin Murphy on Cherry Springs Road. However, Young reportedly fled on the stolen cycle before Murphy could question him.“I was able to identify the rider as Toby Young,” Murphy said in his felony theft warrant against the suspect.Young’s brush with the law was not finished after he evaded Murphy.
