26-year-old man accused of speeding to evade police

A South Carolina motorcyclist has been arrested after he allegedly shared a YouTube video of himself escaping police who were trying to pull him over. The hair-raising video, which was posted last month, at no time shows the man's face. Nevertheless, it does show a motorcyclist's view of passing police cars at breakneck speeds. The speeding ticket and other criminal violations the man has been charged with are serious and could end in stiff punishments if he is convicted.

The speedometer is visible at times during the video showing maximum speeds of 115 mph. It also shows the biker crossing double yellow lines into opposing lanes of traffic. Eventually, the man appears to have completely escaped the police.

Later, though, the video appeared on YouTube and officers accused the man who posted the video of being the speeding biker. The 26-year-old man faces charges of reckless driving, disregard of a traffic device and failing to stop. He faces five counts of each of these charges.

These speeding allegations are certainly not the norm. Typically a traffic citation defense attorney will see cases that involve a single count of speeding or a single failure to obey a traffic device. In putting together a defense for this man's case, it will be important to gather all of the facts relating to the event.

Regardless the allegations, this South Carolina man will likely have several criminal defense options available to him. Those include trying to reach a plea bargaining agreement or trying to cast doubt upon the prosecution's version of the facts with the goal of get some or all of his charges dropped. A thorough review of the facts surrounding this speeding ticket case will reveal the strategy with the highest probability of success.
