I-5 motorcyclist cited for 180 mph, say Oregon police

GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Authorities in Southern Oregon say they arrested a motorcyclist after twice giving up the chase for safety reasons, and the man told them he did better than 180 mph on Interstate 5.
State Police say 23-year-old Jeffrey B. Engebretson was arrested Sunday after his motorcycle slid out on a gravel road. Officers found him in the woods.
Troopers reported trying to stop the Suzuki R650 on I-5 in southern Douglas County and at Roseburg but backed off when it sped away.
Another chase ended in a rural area northwest of Roseburg after the pavement turned to gravel.
A police statement said Engebretson told them he exceeded 140 mph on a county road, 180 mph on the interstate.
Officers said the charges are reckless driving, reckless endangerment and trying to flee.
