A Monday chase of a man on a dirt bike ultimately ended with him getting away for a while, but being found later by officers according to a Cedartown Police report.
Kamari Sullivan, 22, of 529 Pine St., Cedartown, remained in the Polk County Jail with no bond set on charges of failure to stop at a stop sign, riding with no helmet, reckless driving, operating a vehicle without a revalid tag or decal, fleeing or attempting to elude police and obstruction of law enforcement officers. All of those charges are misdemenaors.
Sullivan is reported by Cedartown Police to have been riding on Main Street popping a wheelie on a red and white dirt bike in the middle of the lane around 7:50 p.m., but lost him when Sullivan was reported to have turned onto Central Street. Police kept searching, and eventually found Sullivan on Jones Street where he took off again, this time driving on the sidewalk to avoid being captured by officers.
Some 20 minutes later, the officer who originally spotted Sullivan on the dirt bike found him pushing the vehicle west on Fletcher Street, and pulled over to apprehend him.
“The male (Sullivan) continued to push the dirt bike until I was able to grab the bike,” the report stated. “I knew the male as Kamari Sullivan from a previous encounter involving the same dirt bike where I gave Mr. Sullivan a verbal warning for riding on public roads 10 days prior.”
Police reported that Sullivan gave his bike to his brother, they tried to arrest him and he pulled away. The officer who had been chasing Sullivan forced him to the ground and placed him under arrest.
Sullivan remained in the Polk County Jail this morning with no bond set.
