Police chase ends on foot after motorcyclist ejected

(May 15, 2015) This past Saturday afternoon, a motorcycle driver allegedly ran a red light, fled from the scene, collided with a vehicle and ended up ejected from his bike after an Ocean City police officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop on Philadelphia Avenue.

During the chase, Kevin Joiner, 30, of Church Hill, Md., performed several unsafe lane changes, made several illegal U-turns and rode against the flow of traffic, the report states.

Joiner collided with a vehicle and was launched from his motorcycle after running another red light and nearly striking a family of six legally crossing the roadway at the intersection of Second Street, according to police.

He allegedly attempted to flee on foot, but was detained and arrested.

Joiner was charged with more than a dozen traffic violations including driving with a suspended and revoked license. He was seen by a Maryland District Court Commissioner and released after posting $20,000 bond.
