Police Troop E says two Fort Polk soldiers were taken into custody at the gates of the Army installation after they led state troopers on a high speed chase through Vernon Parish, which reached almost 160 miles per hour.

Troopers say it all began shortly before 1:00 on Sunday afternoon when they tried to stop two motorcycles for speeding on LA Highway 8. However, troopers say the riders took off, first accelerating to 120 miles per hour, and later reaching a speed of 159 miles per hour in a 65 mile per hour zone.

According to the troopers, when they realized that the motorcyclists were trying to get into Fort Polk, they asked Army officials to close the gates, and the riders were captured by troopers and Vernon Parish deputies when they reached the gates.

The driver of a 2012 Yamaha was identified as Nathaniel Sanders, 20, of Fort Polk, Louisiana, and the driver of a 2013 Yamaha was identified as Carlton Jamison, 23, of Honolulu, Hawaii.

Sanders was charged with flight from an officer, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, no driver's license on person, and speeding. Jamison was charged with flight from an officer, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, and speeding. Both were booked into the Vernon Parish Jail.
