Motorcyclist known for extreme speed apprehended by police
The renegade motorcyclist known for cruising area highways at speeds of more than 100 mph was apprehended by police in Randolph on Tuesday.State Police told the Boston Globe that the man, who was known for driving his black and yellow Suzuki GSXR 1000 or 750 on Interstate 93 and 24 at excessive speeds, was busted Tuesday morning on Route 24 after reports surfaced of his erratic driving in the median and sudden lane changes. Thanks to a bystander, he was found hiding behind a large truck in a parking lot, and was subsequently arrested.
State Police originally noticed the man’s driving during the morning and evening commute hours.
“If the operator of the motorcycle observes a marked state police cruiser, he will accelerate, using the breakdown lane, to a speed above 100 mph to avoid being stopped or identified,’’ State Police wrote in a Facebook posting. “The motorcycle has no plate mounted.”
The charges the motorcyclist will face will be revealed Tuesday afternoon. His license will be revoked.
