A Union man was arrested Saturday, May 26, after leading police in a pursuit, crashed a motorcycle and fled on foot from police.
Timothy D. Cahill, 38, was arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated and probation violations after the chase that began in Union.
According to Union police, Cahill was driving the motorcycle at 1:38 a.m. at excessively high rates of speed and ran through traffic lights.
A passenger nearly fell off the motorcycle twice before officers attempted to stop the driver, police said.
After Cahill drove the motorcycle out of the city limits, it was involved in a crash on Busch Road near St. John’s Road.
The man fled on foot from the crash scene, but was arrested shortly afterward by Franklin County deputies.
A 48-year-old Union female passenger on the motorcycle took items from the scene of the crash and also fled the area. She was not located, according to Union police.
Cahill was transported to Mercy Hospital Washington. He was arrested on warrants, police said.
Police said they will seek charges against Cahill for driving while intoxicated, careless and imprudent driving, failure to obey an electrical signal, no proof of insurance, failure to wear protective headgear and displaying the plates from a different vehicle.
Cahill was later released to the Franklin County Jail pending warrants for resisting arrest and leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident while being held on the warrants.
