Bend motorcyclist jailed for DUII after chase, crash
by Bend Weekly News Sources

BEND, Ore. -- Police clocked a speeding motorcycle at 135-mph before the operator refused to pull over for their lights and siren, OSP reported. The 28-year old Bend man led troopers on a pursuit traveling west on Highway 126W about ten miles west of Redmond before he crashed and was arrested for DUII Saturday night.

Anthony Ty Surrat (inset, DCJ photo) crashed his motorcycle (OSP photo) after leading police on a chase when he allegedly failed to pull over after being clocked at 135-mph. 

According to Oregon State Police (OSP), about 8:40 p.m., April 4, Trooper Gary Thompson saw a 2003 Suzuki motorcycle speeding as he headed toward Sisters near milepost 103.

Radar readings registered 135-mph, police reported.

When the driver failed to pull over in an attempted traffic stop, Thompson was joined by Deschutes County Sheriff's deputies who positioned themselves in various locations along the highway.

The motorcyclist, later identified as Anthony Ty Surrat of Bend, lost control of his bike while going around a sweeping right-hand corner near milepost 100, crossed the oncoming lane of traffic and crashed onto the dirt shoulder, troopers said.

Suratt was wearing a protective helmet and leather jacket and only received minor injuries, the news release stated.

He was arrested and lodged in the Deschutes County Jail, troopers reported. Suratt will face charges including felony attempt to elude, driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII), reckless driving and recklessly endangering another person.
