If You’re Going To Run, Get A Tune-Up First

_a_bilde The advice for Louisiana resident Justin Richardson  is, “make sure your bike will run, before you run from the po-po.”

On Monday Feb 4th, Sheriff’s deputies say they tried to stop Richardson as he sped by them on U.S. Highway 80 in Bossier LA.  As the deputy approached, Richardson throttled his Suzuki Hybusa, eventually reaching speeds of over 100 mph.

Everything was working according to his plan, at least until the bike crapped out, leaving him stranded and on foot.

And as fast as his bike was, Richardson was a whole lot slower as police quickly caught him in the median as he was hoofing it.

He was arrested on charges of aggravated flight from an officer, resisting an officer with force, speeding, no insurance, no license plate and no motorcycle endorsement and booked into the Bossier Maximum Security Facility.

Police are not saying what caused the bike to break down, and  they would not confirm nor deny the rumor that Richardson unknowingly hit the kill switch causing the bike to stall.
