On Wednesday, July 19, at approximately 9:15 in the evening, an officer with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department observed a motorcycle traveling east on U.S. 30 from the area of Oak Drive driving recklessly at over 100 MPH.
The officer turned on the motorcycle and attempted to stop the motorcycle which continued east on U.S. 30 before turning south onto U.S. 31.
The driver eventually gave up and pulled into a grassy area near the area of 14th Road where he was taken into custody.
The driver was identified as 19-year-old Edward M. Henrikson of Portage.
Henrikson was transported to the Marshall County Jail and booked for reckless driving and resisting law enforcement and held on a $1,500 cash bond.
