Maryland motorcyclist charged in high-speed police pursuit

A motorcyclist from Maryland has been charged in a high-speed chase and crash in Lancaster last year.

Officers tried to pull over 20-year-old Amos Harlan of Charlestown, Md. in the early morning hours on December 14, 2014 along North Queen Street. Authorities noticed Harlan weaving in and out of the lane, and he failed to stop at a red light.

Harlan reportedly sped away after an officer activated his siren.
