BALDWIN COUNTY, Alabama — A Saraland man is facing charges after crashing his motorcycle into an Alabama State Trooper vehicle while attempting to allude another trooper seeking to make a traffic stop on Interstate 10 between Loxley and Malbis on Monday.

Michael Anthony Jacob, 27, of Saraland is facing misdemeanor charges of reckless endangerment and attempting to elude law enforcement, along with an alias warrant for driving with a suspended license. As of Wednesday, he was listed on the Baldwin County Corrections Center website as being in jail on a $4,500 bond.

According to a release issued Tuesday by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, shortly after 6 p.m. Monday, an Alabama State Trooper attempted to stop a 2017 Kawasaki motorcycle for speeding on westbound I-10 near mile post 41, approximately three miles east of the Malbis exit and three miles west of the Loxley exit, in Baldwin County.

“The rider refused to yield to emergency lights and siren and continued westbound on the interstate until he collided with another trooper’s vehicle near exit 38,” according to the release.

Jacob was transported to University Hospital in Mobile for treatment of injuries he sustained in the crash. Jacob was then arrested on Tuesday for the criminal charges.
