A chase, then arrest 2 months later

Posted: Updated:

ASHDOWN, Ark. (AP) - Two months ago, two motorcyclists led police in southwest Arkansas on a chase in which speeds topped 150 mph.

The riders got away, but officers were able to make arrests last week thanks to video evidence from the incident.

The Texarkana Gazette reports (http://is.gd/5bSNas ) that 20-year-old Xavier D. Livingston was cited for misdemeanor traffic violations that include speeding, careless and prohibited driving and fleeing. Facing similar charges is 19-year-old Jordan Royal of Ashdown. Both have court dates on Feb 12.

Police ended the Oct. 19 chase when the riders were nearing a populated area.

It took two months, but investigators say they were able to use video shot during the chase and other evidence to identify the suspects and issue citations.
