Scooter Chase Ends With Crash At Sandbox

A police chase involving a man on a scooter ended when the red scooter crashed into a sandbox.

Brad McDaniel of Enfield is facing several charges after deputies say they saw him speeding on the scooter on Highway 301. Deputies say McDaniel turned into an apartment complex and eventually collided with a sandbox. Authorities say that didn't stop McDaniel as he ran away.

Deputies say they eventually caught the scooter-speeder hiding in one of the apartments.

Also facing charges is Brian Tillery for obstructing deputies when they tried to arrest McDaniel.

Legally, scooters are only allowed to go up to 35 miles per hour in North Carolina.

    Marvin and PoPo are both right, sort of. 50cc scooters to be ridden without a license should be restricted to limit the speed. This is easily enough undone. If the suspect was speeding on the freeway, he must have been riding something much larger—200cc or up.

    He must have the mentality of a retarded Edsel car designer.He has got to be the laughing stock of the jail house.

    The PoPo in Greenville sounds like the type that will pull someone over on Red Banks Rd because of a worn out wildshield wiper, but he won't dare get out of the patrol car on MLK Bld to deal with a suspicious person half steppin. Put down the law book and grow some.

    Isn't 'scooter' and 'chase' in the same sentence an oxymoron? Certainly, there was a moron driving the scooter. He obviously doesn't play well in the sandbox either.
