MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 22-year-old Crystal man is accused of fleeing police on a motorcycle in traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour, according to criminal charges filed in Hennepin County Court on Friday.

Zachary Maxwell Moore was charged with fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle.

According to a criminal complaint, Orono Police were on routine patrol at about 10:11 p.m. on Aug. 8 when they observed an individual, later identified as Moore, driving a black Suzuki motorcycle. He pulled a “wheelie” on a residential road and was driving more than 100 miles per hour.

While pursuing the motorcycle, police noted that Moore reached a peak of 130 miles per hour in a 35 mile per hour zone. He was making several quick turns and accelerating to avoid officers, the complaint states.

Police later found Moore in a private driveway lying on his stomach trying to hide in the weeds. He was arrested and transported to the Hennepin County Jail.

If convicted, Moore faces up to three years in prison and $5,000 in fines.

Moore was known for creating the company “Civics Reborn,” where he took old Honda Civics and completely rebuilt them, saving car owners thousands of money on vehicles in tough economic times. WCCO-TV recently learned that Moore had fallen far enough behind on repairing vehicles that he had received several complaints from car owners. WCCO-TV knows of  up to 18 complaints.

WCCO reached Moore, and while he would not comment on the charges, he commented on his business, saying his Civics Reborn program is expanding with a new business model and was created to help people using volunteers and subcontractors.
