A Solon man has been accused of failing to yield when police officials turned on emergency lights.

Thomas Wilford, 20, was charged July 6 with eluding.

According to a Johnson County Sheriffs Office complaint, Wilford was operating a motorcycle traveling northbound on Sand Road at an excessive speed. The speed was confirmed on police radar at 122 mph, the complaint said.

Wilford allegedly failed to stop once emergency lights and siren were activated, and he told police officials he was looking in his mirror but didn't see any lights. He attempted to park and hide his motorcycle at Mekong restaurant on Riverside Drive, and the foot chase ended near the Village Inn, the complaint said.

Eluding is an aggravated misdemeanor.
