Georgia suspect leads police on high-speed chase over misunderstanding, destroys motorcycle

A Georgia man was recently arrested after police say he led them on a destructive, high-speed chase, believing they had a warrant for his arrest — even though it wasn’t the case.

Cornelia resident Codey Wayne Shoemake, 33, was charged with felony fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, according to FOX 5 Atlanta. He was also charged with dangerous driving.

At 2:40 a.m. Saturday morning, a sheriff’s deputy reportedly noticed Shoemake speeding on Highway 365 in Baldwin with a “nonfunctional tag.”

When Shoemake noticed he was being followed by law enforcement, he reportedly booked him.

The Habersham County Sheriff’s Office told FOX 5 the suspect was driving at speeds up to 96 miles per hour.

During the chase, Shoemake allegedly crashed his Harley-Davidson motorcycle into a ditch and destroyed it.

Authorities said when they apprehended Shoemake, he told them he fled because he still had his ex-girlfriend’s vehicle in his possession. The suspect thought law enforcement was looking for him for this reason.
