A young Navasota Man was last reported in the Brazos County Detention Center on an $11,000 bond, charged with recklessly driving his motorcycle on Highway 6, on April 16th, past two Brazos County Precinct Two deputies who were writing a ticket south of College Station.
Precinct Two Constable Donald Lampo says 20-year-old Tyler Savant drove past them northbound at a high rate of speed. They then began pursuing him as he ignored their red lights and siren, pacing him for awhile at 100 miles an hour, as he weaved in and out of traffic, until his luck finally ran out as he exited at the William Joel Bryant Parkway, lost control, and crashed in the grass right in front of the Atkins Toyota Used Car Division.
Lampo says Savant refused treatment when the medics were called and was then arrested for Evading.
Actually, Lambo tells Navasota News, Savant’s luck didn’t all run out, as he was not seriously injured, probably at least in part because he was wearing a helmet. He was, however, also charged with Reckless Driving, a Class B Misdemeanor.
As to why he was traveling so recklessly, however, Lambo admits he hasn’t a clue.
Evading Arrest Using a Motor Vehicle is a State Jail Felony. If convicted at trial, Savant could spend up to two years in jail.
