It seems this motorcycle rider felt a reason for failing to stop for a Westminster police officer early Sunday morning.

According to WPD, a motorcyclist “failed to yield” at about 1 a.m. to a police unit in the area of Brookhurst Street and McFadden Avenue for a vehicle code violation.

A pursuit was begun that ended in North Tustin. A search of the rider revealed 1.5 oz. of fentanyl and 23 grams of methamphetamine.

The rider was arrested for felony evading and possession of narcotics for drug sales.

Orange County Sheriff’s Department helicopter unit “Duke” helped in the pursuit.
