Clayton County, GA – A motorcyclist who led Georgia authorities on a dangerous chase on busy roadways through two counties last month got caught by law enforcement after he posted videos of his crimes on social media (video below).
The incident occurred in early December of 2022 when Georgia State Patrol (GSP) troopers spotted the motorcyclist weaving in and out between cars as he sped through Henry and Clay counties, the Daily Mail reported.
Troopers lost sight of the vehicle and Clayton County police officers caught up with the suspect.
What law enforcement officers didn’t know at the time was that the speed demon on the motorcycle was recording his wild ride and the state police vehicles that were pursuing him, the Daily Mail reported.
The motorcyclist posted the videos to social media and that was how authorities eventually tracked him down.
Clayton County Police Lieutenant Thomas Reimers recognized the motorcycle the suspect was riding as highly usual in their area and he started digging online, the Daily Mail reported.
Lt. Reimers found videos the suspect had posted of the police chase in Georgia on TikTok and YouTube.
The lieutenant identified the rare motorbike – a 2022 Triumph Street Triple RS – that the suspect had been riding, the Daily Mail reported.
Further research revealed that state vehicle registration records showed the sports bike was only one of its kind that was registered in the area.
Clayton County police said that registration led them to the identity of the motorcycle’s driver, the Daily Mail reported.
Officers went to the suspect’s home in the Atlanta suburb of Riverdale and confronted him.
Police said the driver confessed that he was the person who had fled from the troopers through multiple counties, the Daily Mail reported.
Officers issued 12 arrests warrants on the suspect and took him into custody without incident, according to the police department.
Authorities have not released the name of the suspect, the Daily Mail reported.
