Motorcyclist hits 120 mph in chase
A motorcyclist fleeing Arkansas State Police in the Little Rock area on Sunday morning drove 120 mph in a 65 mph zone, an arrest report said.
An Arkansas State Police trooper noticed a fictitious license plate on a motorcycle and, when he signaled the rider to pull over, the suspect fled, the report said. The trooper said the motorcyclist ran multiple red lights and stop signs, and he passed other vehicles on double-yellow lines.
When the suspect — Jon Blake Bodiford, 41, of Hot Springs — was arrested near Martin Luther King Jr. and West Daisy L. Gatson Bates drives, he had no proof of insurance, the report said.
Bodiford was in the Pulaski County jail without bond as of Sunday evening facing seven traffic charges, according to the jail’s roster.[RELATED: Click here for interactive map + full coverage of crime in Little Rock]
