Motorcyclist flees at 100 mph in Waterloo: Driver eventually falls off, obstructs police before arrest

Police say an intoxicated Cayuga County motorcyclist was taken into custody after he fled authorities at more than 100 mph in Waterloo.

According to a news release, Deagan Crandall, 21, of Moravia was arrested for DWI and obstruction.

Police say the arrest stems from an incident that occurred just before his arrest where it was reported two males were apparently intoxicated on motorcycles at a gas station in Waterloo.


Deputies from the sheriff’s office attempted to speak with the drivers and they fled at a high rate of speed. Police estimated the speed of the motorcyclists was more than 100 mph.

The motorcyclists continued into the village of Waterloo, before exiting into the town of Seneca Falls. However, Crandall pulled off at a bank in the town of Seneca Falls, where he attempted to flee again. That time though, Crandall fell off his motorcycle.

Police say he continued obstructing, which led to the obstruction charge.

After being arrested, Crandall was released on his own recognizance. The other motorcyclist was not identified in a press release from authorities.
