CUMMING, Ga. — A man driving a motorcycle sped past deputies at speeds over 100 miles per hour and crashed at the intersection of a subdivision, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

At about 1:40 p.m. Oct. 31, deputies responded to a call regarding a reckless driver speeding northbound on Ga. 400.

A deputy spotted the motorcyclist by the intersection of Browns Bridge Road traveling at 110 miles per hour, passing cars on the right shoulder and weaving in and out of traffic.

Deputies followed the motorcyclist and saw him turn onto Hampton Club Drive and crash.

As deputies spoke to the driver, he slurred his speech, was unsteady on his feet and smelled of alcohol.

When deputies asked where he was going, he said he “just took the motorcycle out for a ride.”

Deputies said he was the same man who was arrested a month ago for a DUI and has a limited license.

Calvin Spurlin, 38, was charged with driving under the influence, fleeing or attempting to elude and 10 other traffic offenses, all misdemeanors.
