Motorcyclist arrested for fleeing

A 49-year-old New Haven, Connecticut man was arrested Sunday after fleeing from Deputies on U.S. 1 with approximately an ounce of hallucinogenic mushrooms in his possession.

Matthew Allen Breisch was charged with fleeing and eluding, reckless driving, driving with an expired tag, and drug possession.

The Sheriff’s Office attempted to stop a northbound motorcyclist at approximately 9:07 p.m. near Mile Marker 32 for passing illegally.

The rider, later identified as Breisch, sped away, illegally weaving around traffic. Breisch fled from multiple Deputies several times. He eventually was found on Dorsett Drive attempting to hide the motorcycle in bushes.

Breisch was taken into custody and 27.5 grams of hallucinogenic mushrooms were found in his jacket. He was taken to jail.
