JONESBOROUGH (AP) — Washington County authorities said a motorcyclist riding down the road without a helmet led to a series of discoveries and three arrests. The Johnson City Press reported that when officers stopped 21-year-old outside his home on Tuesday, they found he wasn’t alone. The man also had an 18-month-old baby on board, also without a helmet.
As they wrote him up for reckless endangerment, evading arrest and driving on a suspended license, officers learned another man at the home was a fugitive from North Carolina. They arrested him as well.
But before the officers could leave, they spotted a third man allegedly breaking into a nearby barn. So they arrested him, too.
