A high-speed chase may have stirred some Bryan residents from their slumber in the very earliest hours of the morning Friday.

A Williams County Sheriff’s deputy reportedly observed a dark-colored street bike with its registration not clearly visible northbound in the area of Circle K, 923 S. Main St., Bryan, around 1:40 a.m. Friday.

The motorist, who was wearing a dark helmet, turned west onto Hamilton Street, then north onto South Lynn Street and back east onto Perry Street, where they ran a stop sign at Perry and Main before turning north, ignoring the deputy’s signal to pull over.

According to the sheriff’s office, the motorcyclist’s speed reached over 100 mph while driving on residential streets.

The driver then ran a stoplight at Main and High streets before turning either west onto Bement Street or County Road E, where the deputy lost visual.

According to deputy’s report, the bike’s brake light may have been malfunctioning.

No further description of the individual or vehicle was available.

Anyone with information regarding the incident can call the Williams County Sheriff’s Office at 419-636-3151.
