Glendale man, Mark Gohlmann, uses motorcycle to chase down hit-and-run suspect

GLENDALE, AZ - On Tuesday, Glendale police said that the driver of a red sedan failed to yield to a green SUV near 57th avenue and Bethany Home Road hitting the SUV, causing it to turnover.

The driver of the sedan tried to get away, but Mark Gohlmann hopped on his Harley Davidson to track him down.

"I heard the smash and saw the truck flipping!" said Gohlmann.

He left so fast, he forgot to put on a helmet!

"Immediately everyone was like 'he just jumped on his bike without his helmet," laughed Gohlmann.

Zig-zagging through the road, he even yelled at bystanders to help him.

"Call 911, this guy just did a hit and run. And people were just like "what?'" said Gohlmann.

He followed the driver all the way to a house a few miles away from the accident.

"I was a little bit wary about him jumping out of the car and fighting with me," said Gohlmann.

The suspect didn't. In fact he ran into the house until police arrived.

And you know what? Mark said he would do it again.

"You shouldn't be able to get away with it by just running away," said Gohlmann.

Glendale police gave the driver of the sedan a citation for failing to yield to a stop sign and also for failing to remain at the scene. The driver of the vehicle that was hit suffered minor injuries.
