VAN BUREN COUNTY )WKZO) --  A 21-year-old from Paw Paw is sitting in the Van Buren County Jail after trying to outrun police on an 8-year-old motorcycle.

He was already speeding when Deputies first spotted him on his black Honda at 64th Avenue and 32nd Street in Antwerp Township at about 2:30 Sunday afternoon.

He took off at excessively high speeds down rural roadways, but between bumpy roads, poor handling at high speeds and a lack of fuel,  he eventually gave up.

He is being held pending arraignment for fleeing and eluding.
