Fernando Verdin (Rosenberg Police)

A motorcyclist who fled police during a traffic stop was caught, police said, when he stopped for gas in Sugar Land, police said Friday.

According to Rosenberg Police, Fernando Verdin ignored an officer’s attempt to pull him over and sped away; however, was caught by Sugar Land Police Department officers when he stopped to get gas.

Verdin was arrested and taken to county jail.

The 24-year-old now faces a state jail felony of evading arrest or detention in a motor vehicle.

Note to self... If you're going to make a gesture at the Officer attempting to stop you then take off at a high rate...
