Police chase ended by fence


SIDNEY — A motorcyclist crashed into a private drive on the 800 block of Brooklyn Avenue on Saturday night. He crashed into a fence on the property and flipped over the handlebars.

A Sidney police officer attempted to stop the motorcyclist for an obscured license plate. The motorcyclist took off, leading police down Vandemark Road and Michigan Street. Speeds during the chase reached over 70 mph in town.

Eventually the motorcyclist turned onto Brooklyn Avenue and eventually went down a private drive on the 800 block of Brooklyn Avenue. The driveway had a shut fence door. Roughly 10 feet before the driveway’s fence door, the motorcyclist veered sharply right off of the driveway and then smashed through a wood and wire fence that runs along the side of the driveway.

The motorcyclist flipped over the handlebars while crashing through the fence. The crash occurred shortly before 10 p.m.

The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet and did not sustain any serious injuries. The suspect was booked by Sidney police.

There was an active warrant out for the suspect’s arrest in Miami County.
