Biker leads Sandy Springs police on shortest chase in history | News
SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- A chase between Sandy Springs police and a motorcyclist ended almost as quickly as it began when the rider took a spill while trying to get away.
The department released video on social media that shows a rider accelerating around a parked vehicle while trying to run from police on Roswell Road. The rider appeared to be attempting to get onto westbound Interstate 285.
But that attempt was foiled when a tall curb apparently got in the way bringing the bike down - and the rider along with it.
The video shows the rider attempting to pick up the bike as a uniformed officer comes over to make an arrest.
The official reason for the stop was apparently a missing license plate.
Police accompany the video with a short description asking if it would have just been easier to stop followed by the hashtag "#JUSTSTOP"
