A reckless motorcyclist is in the hospital this afternoon after crashing while attempting to elude authorities. Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) deputies attempted to pull over a red and black motorcycle driving recklessly northbound on Table Rock road near Wilson road in Central Point around 1:15 p.m. The motorcycle eluded northbound on Table Rock road driving recklessly and the JCSO deputy discontinued the pursuit and radioed ECSO dispatch to notify nearby law enforcement.
Another deputy at the intersection of Antelope and Table Rock road witnessed the motorcycle driving recklessly and attempted to pull him over. The motorcycle continued driving recklessly and the deputy discontinued the pursuit.
A JCSO Traffic Team deputy at Highway 234 and Antioch road saw the motorcycle drive by at a high rate of speed into the oncoming lane and he attempted to pull him over. The motorcycle eluded again but due to the reckless driving, the deputy discontinued the pursuit but continued following the suspect.
Deputies spotted him again turning onto a dirt driveway in the 20200 block of Antioch and attempted to pull him over again. The suspect eluded again back onto Antioch road towards White City but discontinued the pursuit when he began driving recklessly. The suspect lost control and laid the bike down a half mile later after crossing into the oncoming lane of a curve.
JCSO deputies spotted the motorcycle on the side of the road and the suspect attempted to flee on foot. Deputies gave verbal commands, warning that a JCSO K9 Team was on the way and the suspect stopped fleeing and was arrested just after 1:30 p.m.
The suspect, Tony Ray Brower-Aishanna Jr., 29, of Central Point, is charged with four counts of elude by vehicle, four counts of reckless driving, and elude by foot. He suffered a broken arm and is in stable condition at a local hospital. Once cleared for confinement he will be lodged at the Jackson County Jail.
A criminal complaint is only an accusation of a crime, and a defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
