An attempted traffic stop by Liberty County Sheriff’s Deputy Janet Coleman Monday afternoon resulted in a lengthy high-speed chase when 38-year-old Michael Lewis Miller of Huntsville reportedly fled from law enforcement.
Miller, riding a crotch rocket motorcycle, and his 25-year-old passenger, Amber Lyn Jordon, of San Jacinto County, reached speeds of 115 miles per hour during the chase, according to Capt. Ken DeFoor, spokesperson for the sheriff’s office.
The chase ended when Miller reportedly turned onto a dead-end road and both he and Jordon attempted to flee on foot into the nearby woods. Both were apprehended and placed into custody.
“The chase ran in and out of Liberty County, Montgomery County and San Jacinto County while law enforcement from several different jurisdictions joined in the chase, attempting to bring it to a safe completion,” DeFoor said.
DeFoor added that a witness told authorities that an object was thrown from the motorcycle during the chase. An item recovered reportedly appears to be methamphetamine.
Miller and Jordon were transported to the Liberty County Jail. Miller is charged with Evading by Motor Vehicle and Jordon is charged with Evading on Foot.
“The investigation is continuing with other possible charges pending,” DeFoor said.
