On CNN Motorcycle chase

Motorcycle chase reaches 140 mph on Arizona highway

PHOENIX (AP) A motorcyclist is in custody after leading Arizona highway patrol officers on a chase at speeds reaching 140 mph.
The rider pulled over near Black Canyon City and was taken into custody after the chase that started in Phoenix and spanned nearly 50 miles.

Helicopters tracked the rider north on Interstate 17 into Yavapai County. Television footage showed the motorcycle weaving between cars and semis, conducting dangerous maneuvers while checking to see if he was being followed.

Earlier, the rider drove through the Phoenix airport to avoid police.

No injuries were reported.

Looks like dude ran out of gas.

By Associated Press
PHOENIX (AP) A motorcyclist is in custody after leading Arizona highway patrol officers on a chase at speeds reaching 140 mph.

Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves says 22-year-old Ian Jonathan Ereckson of Phoenix rode his high-performance sport bike along the streets of west Phoenix and even into the airport. He then headed north on an interstate, pursued by a police helicopter.

The chase ended near Black Canyon City nearly 50 miles north of Phoenix when the rider either ran out of fuel or his bike broke down.

Graves says Ereckson faces felony charges of reckless driving and fleeing from police. He also faces past charges including burglary and auto theft.

Footage from a TV helicopter showed the motorcycle weaving between cars and semis.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

I saw it live. He was in the middle of the desert with no place to go. He kept looking up at the chopper and realized he couldn't shake them. I think he just gave up because he slowed down for few minutes, exited the freeway and pulled onto the shoulder of the overpass.
