A motorcyclist went to extreme measures, appearing to taunt California Highway Patrol officers with dangerous stunts during a high-speed chase. The chase, with speeds that topped 100 mph, lasted for nearly an hour, according to Fox News reports.
During the chase, the brave motorcyclist stood up on the seat of the moving bike several times, and appearing to look back at officers. He can also be seen giving rude hand gestures multiple times.
“I thought he was crazy. I thought he was a lunatic,” one witness told NBC Local news.
The chase happened in San Bernardino County, and only ended when the suspect stopped at a gas station and surrendered.
At one point the man is cornered in a cul-de-sac and nearly captured. Parking his bike, he took of his helmet and can be seen putting in ear buds before he speeds away again—narrowly avoiding the door of a patrol car.
The motorcyclist was identified as 22-year-old Phillip Resendez. He was being pulled over for reckless driving before the chase started.
After he was caught, Resendez was booked for driving on the wrong side of the road and failure to yield. He is set to appear in court for his actions.
