Man charged after 120 mph chase
WILLISTON — A 27-year-old Vermont man is being held on $10,000 bail following a high-speed chase that exceeded 120 mph.
State police said a trooper saw 27-year-old Andrew Leonard of Addison riding his motorcycle at 114 mph on Interstate 89 in Williston at about 1 p.m. Saturday.
When Trooper Adam Marchand attempted to pull over Leonard, he refused to stop and proceeded on Interstate 189 and then onto Route 7, before returning to I-89, where his speed topped 120 mph.
Police said Leonard eventually exited the interstate and made his way down a dead-end road in Essex, where he rode into the woods before losing control of his motorcycle.
He was arrested following a foot chase and charged with grossly negligent operation, excessive speed, attempting to elude and violating furlough.
