A Trooper from the Michigan State Police Lakeview Post attempted to stop two motorcycles travelling at excessive speeds near the village of Sheridan last Friday, July 29, and ended up in a high speed chase.
The motorcycles failed to stop for the Trooper and a pursuit ensued, with speeds reaching in excess of 100 mph. The motorcycles split up, but the Trooper was able to stop one of the motorcycles, and a Stanton man was arrested on multiple charges.
Robert Brandon Jaikowski, 25, of Stanton, was arraigned in Montcalm 64-B District Court on charges of fleeing and eluding a police officer 4th degree, driving on a suspended license, and operating without a motorcycle endorsement. He was released on a $7,500 personal recognizance bond. He has a preliminary hearing set for August 8 at 1 p.m.
The other driver was identified and possible charges are pending.
