KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. (WAVY) — A fugitive wanted in Georgia was arrested after crashing his motorcycle last week during a law enforcement chase on Highway 158, the Dare County Sheriff’s Office says.
A deputy tried to pull over David Flores while he was on his motorcycle around 7:05 p.m. on Thursday, June 9, while Flores was heading north from Kill Devil Hills to Kitty Hawk, officials said.
Flores made a U-turn near Kitty Hawk Road and headed south on Highway 158 before eventually crashing in the area of Henry’s Restaurant, according to deputies.
Flores fled on foot, but was arrested shortly after on the beach near Tateway, deputies say.
The 25-year-old from Durham was charged with fleeing to elude and defaced VIN, both felonies, and on an extradition warrant from Georgia.
He’s being held on a $320,000 secured bond.
