A man from Miramar, Florida was arrested Saturday morning, charged with reckless driving.
Deputy Bradford Colen was running radar near the north end of the Long Key Bridge when 20 year old Bryce Gomez passed him southbound on his motorcycle, traveling 95 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour zone. Deputy Colen pulled out and attempted to stop Gomez, but Gomez failed to stop despite the fact that the deputy was right behind him with his lights and siren active.
As they traveled across the bridge, Gomez passed several vehicles failing to stop for the deputy. Finally, Gomez pulled over. He told Deputy Colen he couldn’t hear the siren because his exhaust was too loud; he said he couldn’t see the lights on the patrol car because he had no rear view mirrors on the bike. Additionally, Gomez was not wearing a helmet, although he was under the age of 21 and thus required to wear one. He was also unable to produce insurance because he had none.
Gomez was arrested; he was charged with reckless driving and was cited for speeding as well. He was booked into jail.
