CALLISBURG, Tex. -- A man is facing charges Tuesday night after leading police on a high speed chase on a motorcycle. It started around 2:30 Tuesday afternoon in Sherman.

Officials say a Grayson County Sheriff’s deputy tried to stop the 20-year-old Frisco man for not having a license plate on his motorcycle, but the man fled north on Highway 75 into Denison, then south back into Sherman, then on Highway 82 west into Gainesville, all while reaching speeds of 130 miles per hour.

The man wrecked on FM 2896 in Callisburg, north of U.S. 82, where authorities caught up with him.

The suspect now faces charges of evading with a vehicle, reckless driving, deadly conduct, and driving without a valid license or without insurance.

His name has not yet been released.
