The Martin County Sheriff’s Office reports that two Palm Beach County motorcyclists were arrested after attempting to elude Martin County deputies today.

The pair was racing and driving recklessly on Interstate 95 at speeds of 130 miles per hour.
When MCSO Traffic Supervisor Sgt. Stephen Mochen attempted to pull them over, they fled. The reckless pair tried to avoid deputies, leading them through residential neighborhoods in Palm City. They then cut through traffic and ended up on SW Busch Street in Palm City.
That’s where marked units, including Sgt. Mochen, were awaiting their arrival. The bikes made one final attempt to avoid the deputies and flee, but crashed instead.
25-year old George Oscar Rodriguez of Lake Worth was transported to the hospital for observation. Both men are charged with felony fleeing, speeding, and reckless driving. 24-year old Christopher Mathew Galvez of West Palm Beach was also charged with resisting arrest without violence. The suspect’s motorcycles will now be seized.
As one of the suspects was handcuffed, he told deputies, “You guys are good.”
