Tennessee motorcyclist arrested by GSP trooper after driving reckless at speeds over 100 mph on I-75

According to a Georgia State Patrol incident report, On March 16th, 2023, at approximately 3:10 PM, TFC3 Terry was stationary on I-75 near mile marker 322 in the center median, checking for speeding violations. Trooper Terry reported, “[I] observed a red sports bike (2023 Kawasaki) traveling south approaching my location at a high rate of speed. The rider was in and out of traffic changing lanes very erratically while passing other vehicles recklessly. While still in traffic, eventually [I] was able to check the motorcycle at 92 MPH as it was passing other vehicles in the far right lane. [I] pulled out and then began attempting to catch up to the bike with my emergency equipment activated. While catching up, [I] noticed the bike had accelerated, and we were then at a speed of 110 plus MPH passing exit 320. [I] pulled up beside the vehicle and observed the driver look at my patrol car. The driver then leaned forward and attempted to flee. [I] positioned my patrol car in front of the motorcycle to keep the rider from being able to flee and took the driver into custody without further incident.” The motorcyclist was identified as Soohoon Lee, 20, of Collegedale, TN. Trooper Terry asked Lee why he attempted to flee, and he originally stated that he was running late. Later he stated he wasn’t running. That he meant he was driving the way he was because he was running late attempting to get to a car dealership in Atlanta. Lee was booked into the Gordon County Jail and charged with reckless driving, speeding, overtaking vehicles, and improper lane change.
