A Buckeye man was arrested Aug. 17 after leading troopers on a high-speed motorcycle pursuit that ended near Interstate 10 and State Route 85 in Buckeye, officials said.

The motorcyclist was identified as 23-year-old Valentin Torres, said Quentin Mehr, a spokesman with the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

A trooper attempted to stop Torres at about 6:30 a.m. for a criminal speeding violation, but he fled westbound on I-10 at speeds reportedly exceeding 120 mph, DPS officials said.

He continued westbound until he exited the freeway at 339th Avenue, then re-entered going eastbound, Mehr said.

The motorcycle ran out of gas and pulled to a stop near I-10 and SR85, and Torres was taken into custody, Mehr said.
