COPPERAS COVE, Texas (KWTX) Shaquille Windsor, 22, remained in custody Monday after a high-speed motorcycle chase that started in Killeen and ended in Copperas Cove during which the high-performance racing bike reached speeds of 209 miles per hour, a Department of Public Safety trooper said.

Windsor, whom authorities identified as a Fort Hood soldier, is facing charges of evading arrest with a vehicle and unlawfully carrying a firearm, according to online jail records.

Bond has not been set.

The chase started just at around 3:45 p.m. after an attempted traffic stop near W.S. Young Drive in Killeen, the DPS said.

The rider led officers on a chase on U.S. Highway 190 and then exited on to Martin Luther King, Jr., Boulevard and abandoned the motorcycle, the DPS said.

He ran into a nearby neighborhood where officers caught him.

They also recovered a firearm, the DPS said.
