    Motorcyclist Charged With DWI After Leading Cops on High-Speed Chase: Police

    A Long Island man was arrested on DWI charges after police say he led officers on a high-speed motorcycle chase through Seaford Sunday evening.

    Police tried to stop motorcyclist Dennis Vogel, 48, just before 5 p.m. as he sped 90 mph in a 55 mph zone on the northbound Wantagh State Parkway south of Merrick Road, according to police.

    Vogel allegedly led police off the Wantagh Parkway and east onto Merrick Road. A trooper was able to locate the motorcycle south of Merrick Road on Roanoke Street and shortly after, the Harley Davidson struck a parked car and Vogel was arrested.

    He was charged with driving while intoxicated, unlicensed operation of a vehicle, fleeing an officer and other traffic violations. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.
