LOWNDES CO., AL (WSFA) -
A Montgomery firefighter was arrested Friday following a high speed chase through Lowndes County, authorities are confirming.
Alabama State Troopers say 21-year-old James Green of Burkville was riding a sport bike on Alabama 21 when Troopers witnessed him driving recklessly.
Troopers tell WSFA 12 News they clocked Green doing 140 mph in a 55 mph zone.
Authorities attempted to initiate a stop of Green's motorcycle through a high speed chase that stretched a distance of approximately eight miles.
The firefighter now faces attempting to elude law enforcement and reckless endangerment charges. Several traffic citations are also pending including operating the motorcycle without a license plate.
The City of Montgomery issued a statement saying, "The Montgomery Department of Public Safety was notified of the arrest by Alabama State Troopers. Montgomery Fire and Rescue is initiating appropriate disciplinary action and a parallel investigation of this incident."
