MOULTRIE — A Colquitt County man’s attempt Tuesday afternoon to outrun a pursuing deputy stalled when the motorcycle he was driving developed a mechanical problem.
Before taking a deputy on a chase that reached speeds of about 100 miles per hour, Marion Chadwick Wells dropped off a female passenger, said Lt. Randy Stephens of the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office.
The motorcyclist drove through a yard and a field, dropping off the woman, and then fled from the deputy down Dunn Road. Just before that road intersects with Thigpen Trail the motorcycle began blowing out a large amount of either oil or transmission fluid and he was forced to stop, Stephens said.
The officer tried to stop Wells because he recognized him and knew that there was an active warrant for his arrest on a charge of violating parole, Stephens said.
Wells, 38, 2122 R.L. Sears Road, was charged with fleeing or attempting to elude police officer, reckless driving, speeding, driving while license withdrawn and the original probation accusation.
