A motorcyclist who led police on a high-speed chase pleaded not guilty on Wednesday in Crawford County Circuit Court.

David Paul Caldwell, 31, of Fort Smith is charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, fleeing in a vehicle, possession of marijuana, driving while license suspended or revoked and fictitious tags. He is charged as a habitual offender.

The public defender’s office entered the not-guilty plea for Caldwell and waived formal arraignment before Judge Mike Medlock.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, Sgt. Dennis Shores of the Alma Police Department attempted to stop a motorcycle driven by Caldwell on March 9 for speeding and failing to stop for a stop sign.

When Shores activated his emergency lights, the motorcycle fled south on Arkansas 162 with speeds of 100-plus miles an hour and Caldwell driving on both sides of the highway, the affidavit states.

With the assistance of the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department and Van Buren Police Department, the motorcycle was stopped in the 3000 block of Arkansas 162.

Upon placing Caldwell in custody, Shores located a glass case that contained suspected marijuana and a white crystal substance in a plastic bag along with several empty plastic bags, the affidavit states.
