A Cumberland County motorcyclist fled from a state trooper after being clocked going 50 mph over the speed limit on Interstate 83 in East Manchester Township, police said.
Michael Lloyd Deimler, 23, of 36 Creekside Drive in Enola, is free on $2,500 bail, charged with fleeing or attempting to elude police, reckless driving, running a red light, failing to stay within a lane, driving at an unsafe speed, speeding, careless driving, failure to use a turn signal, having no inspection, failure to have a valid Class M motorcycle license, failure to immediately provide vehicle registration and failure to change home address within 15 days.
According to charging documents filed, a state police trooper was running radar about 7:45 a.m. Saturday near mile marker 26, which is halfway between the Emigsville and Zions View/Strinestown View exits.
115 mph? Deimler rode past the trooper on a 2004 Kawasaki and was clocked doing 115 mph in a 65 mph zone, documents allege.
The trooper turned on his lights and siren gave chase, documents state.
Deimler exited at Strinestown (Exit 28) at a high rate of speed, ran the red light at the end of the ramp and turned right onto Susquehanna Trail, police allege.
He eventually turned north onto Oaklyn Road, at which point the trooper lost sight of him, then turned onto Stevens Road. When the trooper caught up, he saw the motorcycle in the grass and Deimler trying to get back on the bike, police said.
The trooper ordered Deimler to "drop the motorcycle and get on the ground," then arrested the man, documents state.
Deimler declined immediate comment.
