He noticed a 2005 Yamaha YZF turn onto Hwy 136 and then increase the speed at a high rate. Deputy Moss reported, “[I] then pulled out behind motorcycle and observed he was passing several other vehicles on a double yellow middle line. At this point, the motorcyclist was driving in a high rate of speed and recklessly. [I] then activated my emergency lights and sirens to conduct a traffic stop. The motorcyclist (Alex Tyler Wallin, 25, of LaFayette) did not slow down or attempt to come to a stop.” Deputy Barkley responded and advised dispatch they would be giving chase at this time due to extremely reckless driving.
