LEESVILLE, LA. — Louisiana State Police arrested two soldiers stationed at Fort Polk after they led troopers on a high-speed chase during which they were clocked riding high-performance motorcycles about 100 miles an hour above posted speed limits.

Trooper Scott Moreau said 23-year-old Carlton Jamison, of Honolulu, turned onto La. Highway 184, but not before being clocked doing 142 mph in a 45-mph zone on La. Highway 8.

Moreau says the driver of the other motorcycle, 20-year-old Nathaniel Sanders, of Fort Polk, stayed on Highway 8 and was clocked going 159 mph in a 65-mph zone.

Sanders and Jamison were booked into the Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office over the weekend with flight from an officer, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle and speeding.

It was unclear whether the men have attorneys.
