State Police: Bronx Biker Drove 130 MPH During Chase On Thruway
BETHLEHEM, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A Bronx man is set to appear in court Friday after state police said he was found with more than 1 and 1/2 pounds of cocaine after driving his motorcycle 130 mph while trying to elude troopers.
Carolos Sued, 36, faces several charges including drug possession and unlawful fleeing a police officer, authorities said.
Police said troopers spotted Sued speeding on the Thruway just south of Albany Wednesday afternoon. When troopers attempted to pull him over, he sped away and weaved in and out of traffic at speeds topping 130 mph, police said.
When Sued tried to make a U-turn, he dropped his Yamaha sport bike on its side and attempted to flee on foot before being caught by troopers, police said.
He remains in the Albany County Jail where he is being held without bail.
