— A York man led Clover Police on a five-minute, 11-mile high-speed chase Friday morning when he fled after officers tried to stop him for speeding on his motorcycle, police said.

At about 2:45 a.m., officers were called after receiving word that a man on a motorcycle was speeding through town limits, said Lt. Tanner Davis with the Clover Police Department. They found Christopher O’Brian Greene, 22, at the intersection of Marietta Street, near the Clover Chapel Cemetery, and Kings Mountain Street.

When officers attempted to stop Greene, he accelerated, reaching in excess of 100 mph as two officers chased him in their patrol cars, Davis said.

The chase ended near the entrance of Kings Mountain State Park as Greene tried turning a corner, but instead fell off his motorcycle, he said.

He suffered from minor injuries but was taken to an area hospital and later released. Police charged Greene with driving under the influence, failure to stop for a blue light and as a habitual traffic offender.

Davis said Greene also had an outstanding warrant for possession of a stolen vehicle from the York County Sheriff’s Office, which police believe might have prompted him to flee.
