Man Arrested After High Speed Chase

The Wichita County Sheriff's Office is investigating a high speed chase involving a motorcycle Wednesday afternoon.

The chase began at 5:00 p.m. on northbound Highway 79, when deputies said they saw Billy Joe Pitchford, 33, on a stolen black Suzuki motorcycle, traveling over 100 miles per hour.

Deputies say a chain broke on the motorcycle forcing Pitchford to ditch the bike on Glidwell.

The 33 year old was later found on Lucas and Sunnyside.

Pitchford was said to have been wearing only a helmet and blue jeans when taken into custody.
