VAN BUREN COUNTY (WKZO) -- He was the one who got away...but not for long.
Deputies spotted a 41-year-old Paw Paw man riding a dirt bike on M-40 near Lawton Saturday afternoon and gave chase.
The biker veered into the woods where the officers briefly gave chase on foot but the biker soon disappeared.
Unfortunately for the suspect, homeowners in the area knew who he was and gave the deputies his address.
As they rolled up, he came out with his hands up. He claims he fled because he had a suspended license. The dirt-bike was found hidden in his neighbor’s garage.
He may be charged with attempted fleeing and eluding.
