Mounds man arrested following high speed chase
A Mounds man is in the Okmulgee County Jail, after he fled from law enforcement before crashing his motorcycle.
Curtis Allyn Geer, 48, is being held on numerous complaints following his arrest on April 5.
District court records stated a deputy with the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office was on patrol near Alabama and 6th Street, when he observed a subject on a motorcycle fail to stop for a posted stop sign.
The officer attempted to stop the driver, but the subject sped away, and according to the affidavit, reached speeds of over 100 mph while passing other vehicles and running stop signs.
The pursuit continued northbound on Alternate Hwy. 75 with the motorcycle driving at a high rate of speed, with several vehicles having to take evasive action to keep from colliding with the cycle.
Though the rear tire of the cycle had a blowout, the officer noted Geer continued at a high rate of speed on Alternate 75.
At 191 Road and Alternate 75, the motorcycle reportedly left the roadway and was traveling in a ditch when the cycle crash, pitching the subject face first into the ditch.
Geer began running away from law enforcement, but was stopped a short time later. After subduing the subject, the officers removed a 7-inch fix blade pocket knife from the subject.
Geer was checked onsite by Okmulgee County Emergency Medical Service personnel for injuries due to the crash.
Besides having a suspended driver’s license, he also was wearing an ankle monitor.
Bond was set at $39,500 on complaints of Failure to Obey Traffic Control Device, Reckless Driving, Resisting Arrest, Obstructing An Officer, Attempting to Elude, Driving Under the influence and Driving Under Suspension.
Geer is also facing a re-commitment by bondsmen in the amount of $39,250 in CF-2018-25 where he was charged with Driving Under Suspension, Possession of CDS, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Possession of Stolen Vehicle and Second Degree Forgery.
An initial appearance on the new complaints is May 2 at 2 p.m. Geer is also scheduled in district court on May 8 at 1:30 p.m. before Judge Adair.
