      Motorcyclist escapes police and crashes his motorcycle

      Papay was not injured in the accident after fleeing authorities.

      A teen speeds away from the police and ends up crashing his motorcycle.

      Deputy Officer Mark Brecht tried to pull over 19-year-old Branden Papay shortly before 2:30 a.m. for speeding at Road 17-S near Rimer in Putnam County. Papay instead, raced down Gomer Road in Allen County in his Yamaha motorcycle.

      Authorities lost sight of the vehicle, but a nearby resident called Allen County Sheriff's Office to report a male had crashed his bike wanting to use the resident's phone. Papay was not injured in the accident after fleeing authorities.

      That's when deputies rushed to locate Papay and found him near Gomer and Bussert Road.

      Papay is held at the Putnam County Adult Detention Facility for failing to comply with order of a police officer.
