HARVEY COUNTY — One person was taken into custody after trying to flee law enforcement on a motorcycle Tuesday night.

A Harvey County Sheriff’s Office deputy attempted to stop the motorcycle as it traveled on Interstate 135 around mile marker 27, south of Newton, around 10:30 p.m. The motorcycle did not have a license plate displayed.

The driver of the motorcycle refused to stop, causing law enforcement to initiate a pursuit through the southern parts of Newton. The pursuit lasted about five minutes, ending with the motorcyclist losing traction and stopping near the parking lot of the Sand Creek Station Golf Course.

Joseph Irwin, 35, of Mulvane, was taken into custody and charged with felony flee and elude, as well as other traffic misdemeanors. He is being held in the Harvey County Detention Center.

No one was injured in the incident. There was no significant damage to golf course property.

The Newton Police Department assisted with the pursuit.
