RELEASE NUMBER: 2020-NR-055
CONTACT: Colonel Noah Robinson
AUTHORITY: Sheriff Dave Wedding
An Evansville man is in jail after crashing a stolen motorcycle while fleeing from the Sheriff’s Office.
On Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at 12:21AM a Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office deputy observed a motorcycle traveling north on North Green River Road. When the deputy attempted a traffic stop, the operator stopped and had his female passenger dismount. The operator, later identified as Mr. Christopher Bradley Hall, then fled at high speed.
Hall failed to negotiate a turn on Millersburg Road and struck a curb, laying the motorcycle down. Hall rolled about ten feet from the motorcycle and landed in a grassy area. The deputy checked on Hall, who gave a false name. Hall sustained a laceration to the back of his head and road rash to the right side of his body. He was transported by ambulance to a local hospital.
A registration check revealed the motorcycle to be stolen. A records search revealed that Hall had a suspended driver’s license and was wanted on felony charges in both Gibson County and Warrick County.
A search of Hall’s belongings revealed nearly 3 grams of methamphetamine and a small amount of fentanyl.
Hall was later released from the hospital and booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail.
