According to the criminal complaint, officers spotted his motorcycle going more than 30 mph over the speed limit on June 5. When they attempted to pull him over, he took off, at points reaching speeds topping 100 mph.

One deputy said Neidermann began throwing small baggies out of his pocket during the chase and flipped off several officers.

Deputies said the chase ended when Neidermann drove down a dead-end road, through someone’s yard, and got stuck in a swampy yard.

He’s free on a $500 cash bond. He returns to court in August.
