On Jan. 10, Titus Knight was allegedly speeding on a motorcycle down a country road in Florence when an officer spotted him, according to the Florence Alabama Police Department.
Officers said they activated their squad car's flashing lights, and Knight immediately accelerated and hit speeds of more than 100 miles per hour. Police claimed he cut through a construction zone while attempting to flee.
Officers then made a decision to terminate the pursuit due to the “combination of the high speeds, amount of traffic present and overall public safety," police said.
Detectives didn't give up, however, and reviewed social media and footage from area traffic cameras to try and find video or photos that could help them to identify the motorcyclist.

Their efforts were successful, and police said “the person who eluded Florence police made a Snapchat with the caption, ‘Your Tahoe needs a tune up buddy @flopd.’”
According to officials, the user's Snapchat handle had formerly been an inmate number previously assigned to Knight from a prior offense.
