Motorcyclist Leads CHP on Chase, Stops 4 Times for Gas

August 28, 2014  | 

A 28-year-old Oakland, Calif., man was arrested by the California Highway Patrol after a lengthy chase during which he reportedly tried four times to refuel a stolen Kawasaki ZX 10, before finally running out of gas, officials said, reports the Oakland Tribune.

The chase started about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday when a CHP K-9 officer tried to stop Mark Crawford, who was allegedly speeding on Hegenberger Road near Interstate 880 on a motorcycle that had no license plate, authorities said. The officer did not know at the time that the cycle had been stolen in January.

With a CHP helicopter above and officers on the ground in pursuit, the chase went on and off the freeway and on city streets, with the motorcycle at times going in excess of 80 mph.

The helicopter officers kept in contact with officers on the ground. When Crawford stopped four times at different stations for gas, he was stymied each time when CHP patrol officers were directed to his location by the helicopter, and he was forced to take to the road again.

He finally ran out of gas shortly after 11 p.m. at a fifth gas station and took off running. He was arrested after a short foot chase. Crawford had five outstanding arrest warrants, authorities said.

It's California. Unfortunately, the jack*ss will be out sooner than the Officer can finish the report and will do it again.
