Police Tackle Motorcyclist After High-Speed Pursuit on Freeways

San Bernardino police tackled a motorcyclist after a high-speed pursuit on freeways from San Bernardino to the Ontario area Wednesday night.

Officers began pursuing a motorcycle carrying a man and a woman in the San Bernardino area as the rider exceeded speeds of 100 mph at 8:45 p.m.

The rider, believed to be armed, slowed the motorcycle down and pushed the woman off at 15th and G streets.

The rider began speeding on surface streets before hopping on the 10 Freeway heading west. The rider then headed south on the 15 Freeway.

The motorcyclist ditched the bike and began running with officers in tow in the 2300 block of S. Baker Avenue in Ontario.

The rider hopped a fence before the takedown by police. He and the female passenger were taken into custody.

The woman had a backpack when she was bumped off the bike, and officers discovered a gun in the pack, Lt. Richard Lawhead said.
