CUMMING, Ga. — A motorcyclist tried to flee from deputies, but crashed into a patrol car, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

On Oct. 12, a deputy saw a motorcyclist driving by the intersection of Ronald Reagan Parkway and Buford Highway with a suspended and expired tag.

The motorcyclist turned into the RaceTrac Petroleum, 888 Buford Highway, and began to pump gas. The deputy drove to the Chili’s next door and called for back up in case the motorcyclist tried to flee.

One deputy pulled to the side of the gas station while the other pulled behind the cyclist and activated his blue lights.

Deputies said that when the suspect saw the patrol car, he jumped on his motorcycle and took off. A deputy turned into the parking lot as the motorcyclist tried to turn out, and he hit the patrol car.

Deputies handcuffed the man and waited for an ambulance to evaluate his injuries from the crash.

Deputies found three syringes, a dirty glass pipe and a small plastic bag with residue in it.

Jeffery Booth, 46, was charged with three counts of felony possession of methamphetamine, one count of possession of drug-related objects, misdemeanors, and four traffic offenses, misdemeanors.

Booth was taken to Forsyth County Detention Center for booking.
