Kent police arrested a Federal Way man for investigation of reckless driving after the man reportedly hit estimated speeds of 80 to 90 mph driving a motorcycle along Pacific Highway South while eluding an officer.

An officer initially spotted the motorcyclist near the 27100 block of Pacific Highway South on Aug. 25 going about 56 mph in a 45 mph zone southbound on Pacific Highway South, according to the police report.

The motorcyclist then pulled into the driveway near the police vehicle and sped through a strip mall parking lot before returning to Pacific Highway. The officer activated his siren but the motorcyclist kept driving southbound on Pacific Highway, swerving in and out of traffic and moving from the far left lane to the far right lane, hitting estimated speeds of 80 to 90 mph near the 28000 block.

With many vehicles on the highway, the officer terminated his pursuit after only a few blocks. But he had the license plate of the motorcycle and tracked the man down at a Federal Way home.

The man told police he had seen the patrol vehicle but didn’t stop because he couldn’t afford another ticket.

Police arrested the man for investigation of reckless driving as well as cited him for speeding, expired tabs and not having a motorcycle endorsement on his license.
