A Hull man was arrested recently after he fled when an officer attempted to pull his motorcycle over for speeding on Diamond Hill – Neese Road.
Clint Lee Flanigan, 38, 803 Willis Glenn Road, was charged with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance, fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, speeding, reckless driving and driving while license suspended.
According to the incident report, officer Jason Ring spotted Flanigan’s motorcycle going at a high rate of speed (73 mph) in a 45 mph zone. Ring initiated a traffic stop and Flanigan pulled over, threw a black bag into the ditch and then took off at a high rate of speed. Ring pursed him until the motorcycle lost control and went into a ditch. As Ring pulled up to him, Flanigan allegedly attempted to pick the bike up. Ring drew his firearm and ordered Flanigan to the ground. He complied and was placed in handcuffs. The bag was retrieved, which contained a small clear plastic bottle wrapped in black tape that contained methamphetamine.
