The charges stem from a St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office investigation on July 16 when deputies were dispatched to assist Osceola Police Department with stopping two motorcycles traveling at a high rate of speed and failing to yield. The motorcycles were originally traveling northbound on Highway 13. When they reached Lowry City they turned around and started traveling southbound on Highway 13. Several deputies joined in the attempt to stop the vehicles. While passing Highway 82 speeds reached approximately 135 miles per hour. The motorcycles continued south on Highway 13 into Polk County. As they approached Highway 32, Bolivar, one motorcycle pulled over and stopped. The driver, Eric Woods, 21, Springfield, was taken into custody and charged with class D felony resisting arrest by fleeing. Turner continued on and eluded law enforcement. He was not apprehended. During the investigation it was discovered Turner’s driver’s license is revoked.
