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.

    TO "OUTLAW BIKES" You know when older people retire they like to get on there big gold wing and just ride on really nice days. JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE IDIOTS OUT THERE WE ARE NOT ALL THAT WAY. YES BIKES ARE DANGEROUS BUT ITS MORE DANGEROUS FOR THE BIKERS THEN IT IS YOU BECAUSE PEOPLE IN VEHICLES DONT PAY ATTENTION TO BIKERS. JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE SOME KIDS THAT MOM AND DAD BOUGHT A FAST MOTORCYCLE FOR DOESNT MEAN THAT BIKES SHOULD BE OUTLAWED so sit on your porch on a nice day and I will wave at you when my husband and i pass your house!!!lol

    i saw a part of the chase coming south from denison towards sherman and i feel that it was totally rediculous for the sheriffs department to put so many peoples lives in danger as well as their own just to stop a lunatic for no license plate! no ones life is worth that!

    Be glad you don't live in Ardmore. He would have been allowed to drive and do whatever he pleased. Ardmore police can't chase people for non-violent crimes. I hope the police chief's wife doesn't get in a crash with a drunk driver because the police had to watch him drive away.
