A suspended driver on his motorcycle has been busted by police, after reaching speeds of 115 mph while trying to get away.

He was originally stopped for street racing with another motorcyclist, at about 1:00 am in Westland.

During a police pursuit, the biker takes police through 4 different cities including Wayne, Dearborn and Inkster.

The pursuit eventually ended with the biker losing control and laying his bike down.

Thankfully, no one was hurt as a result of his reckless actions. Police say multiple agencies performed outstanding work in making the arrest of the 26-year-old man from Taylor.

The pursuit lasted for 14 minutes, and police say they maintained a safe distance and speeds the entire time.

The biker who was arrested also had an outstanding warrant for his arrest. He's now facing a felony charge of fleeing and eluding.

He's scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow in a Westland courtroom.
