A Krum man was arrested by state troopers Thursday night after leading them in a high-speed pursuit and crashing on the west
side of Runaway Bay.
Around 5:30 p.m. a reckless driver on a black motorcycle was reported on U.S. 380 in Decatur. Department of Public Safety Trooper Philip Redmon said he got behind the motorcycle on 380 near the Wise County Sheriff’s Office and activated his lights and siren in an attempt to pull him over.
Driver Cody Loos, 23, did not stop but instead continued west on 380 at a high rate of speed.
Redmon couldn’t confirm the speed, but other officers said over the police scanner the motorcycle was traveling more than 100 miles per hour.
As the chase approached the Runaway Bay city limit, Bay officer Kevin Bragg joined the pursuit. A Wise County deputy was also part of the chase.
The motorcycle crashed on the west side of Runaway Bay, but Loos was not injured. He fled on foot and was quickly apprehended by Bragg.
He was examined by Wise County medics and arrested for evading arrest/detention with a vehicle. Loos was booked into Wise County Jail and was released Friday on a $15,000 bond.
