Biker pops a wheelie, Coffee deputies apply handcuffs

DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) - A man who was doing stunts an unregistered, uninsured motorcycle on a Coffee County highway ended up behind bars, after a 100 mile-an-hour chase, Tuesday.

Late Tuesday afternoon, a Coffee County deputy saw a motorcycle turn off U.S. Highway 441 onto Georgia Highway 206 Connector, standing the bike on its rear tire as he zoomed down the road.

The deputy initiated a traffic stop, and the driver sped away, leading the deputy on a dangerous high-speed chase, and breaking a slew of traffic laws.

He eventually ditched the motorcycle around Quincey Batten Loop, and ran off into the woods. But deputies soon caught Ronald James Corbitt, 40, of Douglas, and put him in handcuffs.

Corbitt had no drivers license, and was operating the unregistered vehicle without insurance.

He was transported to the Coffee County Jail and charged with fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license, no insurance, operating an unregistered vehicle, and numerous other traffic violations.
