Mount Airy teen-ager is charged after crash

An 18-year-old Mount Airy resident with no driver's license was arrested on drug charges Aug. 21 after allegedly speeding his motorcycle past police in Ellicott City and crashing in a culvert near Route 94, Howard County police said.

Daniel Francis Mackie, 18, of the 700 block of W. Watersville Road was released on his own recognizance.

Charges included possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, speeding, attempting to elude police and driving

on a learner's permit without supervision.

An officer on routine patrol clocked the motorcycle traveling at 103 mph in a 55-mph zone, police said. The officer tried to stop the motorcycle, but the motorcycle continued west on U.S. 40 near Turf Valley Country Club, eventually turning onto Interstate 70.

The driver passed another patrol car before exiting on Route 94 near Lisbon, where officers lost sight of him.

Police said they found the driver and motorcycle in a nearby ditch after a crash.

The suspect was taken to Montgomery General Hospital, where he was treated and released to police. Police searched the man, finding a marijuana pipe and cigarette rolling papers, a police spokesman said.
