Officers located the motorcycle, and while observing it, saw the operator, identified as Reeves, fail to stop at a stop sign. When police initiated a traffic stop with lights and sirens, Reeves accelerated away, reaching speeds over 100 MPH.

Reeves was later found and charged with multiple offenses, including failure to stop at a stop sign, speeding in excess of 55 MPH, failure to obey a police officer, reckless driving, unlawful fleeing, and obstruction of governmental administration.

He was released on an appearance ticket and will appear in Seneca Falls Town Court at a later date.
