[portfolio_slideshow id=10760]

Two men face multiple charges following a high-speed motorcycle chase that reached a speed of 152 miles per hour on Hwy. 287 between Henrietta and Bellevue Monday afternoon.

Kory Joe French, 31, of Henrietta, has been charged with theft over $1,500, less than $20,000 after it was discovered that the motorcycle he was riding had been reported stolen out of Wichita Falls. French also is charged with evading arrest or detention with a motor vehicle and driving with a suspended license. French also had a warrant for his arrest for failing to appear for a court date involving a possession of marijuana charge.

Parker Justin Oliver, 29, of Holliday, has been charged with evading arrest or detention with a motor vehicle and driving with an invalid license.

Bonds for both men will be set Tuesday.

At about 2 p.m., DPS Trooper Harley Rosenberger clocked the motorcycles traveling south on Hwy. 287 at 87 miles per hour, and attempted to stop French and Oliver near the twin bridges south of Henrietta. The two motorcycles stopped some distance apart. Rosenberger asked Oliver to pull up to the motorcycle French was riding. At that point, French left the scene at high rate of speed south on Hwy. 287.

The trooper pursued French, who crossed the center median and made a U-turn onto Hwy. 287 North. Rosenberger said that as he chased French in the northbound lanes, he saw Oliver speeding down the southbound lanes toward Bellevue.

Troopers later found Oliver’s motorcycle hidden behind DW’s Adult Video, between the building and a dumpster. Oliver was found hiding in a restroom inside the business.

With three DPS and three Clay County Sheriff’s Office units in pursuit, French slowed and pulled over as he approached the Hwy. 82 overpass southwest of Henrietta.
