After a while, the Darke County Sheriffs Office took over the pursuit.

He continued south before crashing the motorcycle near the intersection of Wilson Drive and North Broadway Street while attempting to turn east onto a bike path.

He was taken back to the jail, and the motorcycle was towed. He was charged with failure to comply, driving under suspension, reckless operation, failure to display, no turn signal, and failure to control.
