GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A man says he led police on a high-speed chase through Gainesville because he was "bored."
Gainesville police arrested the man Saturday night after he ditched his dirt bike and hid inside a house.
The Gainesville Sun (http://bit.ly/17WpuSA) reports the chase reached speeds between 80 and 90 mph and ran through a soccer field and over several streets.
Officer Daniel Abbott says the bike didn't have a license plate and driver Daron Brown was driving recklessly.
After Brown ditched the bike, police surrounded the house where he was hiding until he surrendered.
Brown acknowledged that the incident happened because he was bored. He now faces charges of fleeing police and driving an unregistered vehicle. He remained in the Alachua County Jail early Monday.
