In Roseburg on Saturday at approximately 10:55 a.m. OSP Senior Trooper Mark Moore saw a motorcycle with two occupants northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 120 and noted its speed at 83 mph in a 65 mph speed zone. As Moore was overtaking the motorcycle to initiate a traffic stop, it sped northbound attempting to elude at speeds estimated over 100 mph.
As Moore was trying to keep the motorcycle in sight, it got off at Exit 127 in north Roseburg and became stuck behind traffic on Edenbower Boulevard. Moore caught up to the motorcycle stopped at a red light, noted the license plate and saw the operator of the motorcycle had a female passenger. When the operator saw OSP behind him he sped northbound in heavy traffic on Highway 99 towards Sutherlin passing vehicles in the oncoming lanes traveling at over 100 MPH. OSP terminated its attempt to stop the motorcycle.
At 3:20 p.m. OSP troopers went to the registered owner’s residence and contacted ALEN PATRICK BROCK, age 21. Following an interview with BROCK, he was arrested and taken to the Douglas County Jail where he was lodged for Felony Eluding Police in a Motor Vehicle, Reckless Driving, and Recklessly Endangering a Minor. He was also cited for Violation of the Basic Rule to wit: 107 mph in a 55 mph speed zone.
Troopers also contacted and identified the 14-year old female passenger. After she was interviewed by OSP she was released to her parents from the suspect’s residence.
To Mr. Brock, really, REALLY?! Thank you for helping label motorcycle riders as misguided and stupid. Does it feel good to contribute to the increasing insurance rates and providing ammunition for the anti-motorcyclists?
