A Redfield man was arrested for Tuesday afternoon when he allegedly ran away from the scene of a motorcycle accident at the arrival of law enforcement.
John Joseph Moyle, 38, of 1614 Thomas St., Redfield, was charged with interference with official acts-bodily injury, driving while license denied or revoked, operating vehicle without interlock, failure to obey stop sign and yield right of way, failure to maintain control, leaving scene of a personal-injury accident-failure to provide aid or information and driving with suspended, denied or revoked license or registration.
The incident began shortly before 4 p.m. Tuesday near Old Highway 6 and Omaha Street in Redfield, where a Dallas County Deputy Sheriff came upon a collision involving a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, driven by Moyle.
Moyle “ran from the scene” when the deputy arrived, according to court records. “He was given commands to stop and did not until caught on foot.”
Moyle told the deputy that “he ran because he doesn’t have a license. The he stated that his dad was driving, but he was nowhere around.” A female passenger was injured in the accident, and Moyle told the deputy “that she was driving.”
The female passenger “had a cut on her head and was holding her right arm,” according to court records. She and Moyle were examined by Dallas County EMS, and both “refused to go to the hospital.”
Moyle is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $5,000 cash-only bond. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing March 22 in Dallas County District Court.
