Two arrested for operating off-road motorcyles on road–and then fleeing from deputies in Stafford
The Stafford Sheriff’s Office says Saturday afternoon. Deputy C.R. Szentkuti observed two off-road motorcycles being operated on Warrenton Road near Olde Forge in south Stafford. As he attempted to make a traffic stop, the motorcyclists fled into Olde Forge and onto a dirt trail.
Deputy Szentkuti, Deputy B.W. Gildea and Deputy C.D. Sullivan were unable to go off-road to locate the suspects. With the assistance of residents in the area, a 28-year-old King George man was located on Shaw Court and identified as one of the riders. The Sheriff’s Office says he provided excuses of trying to “have fun” and being “scared.” The suspect was charged with eluding and driving an ATV on a roadway. He was held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail on a $500 bond.
The arrest of the first suspect led deputies to the second suspect in Grafton Village. The second rider was identified as an 18-year-old Stafford man. This suspect was charged with eluding, driving revoked, and ATV on a roadway. He was held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail on a $2,000 bond.
