Texas authorities say motorcycle chase topped 150 mph


SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Bexar County sheriff's deputies are looking for a motorcyclist who eluded them in a chase where speeds topped 150 mph.

Deputies say they tried to pull over the biker for a malfunctioning tail light late Sunday night and he took off, at one point reaching 155 mph to pull away from them.

The chase ended after about 40 minutes when the rider ditched his bike.

A helicopter was brought in to help with the search but he was able to get away.

Authorities say they believe they know the identity of the motorcyclist.
