Police: Motorcyclist reached 100 mph in chase

SYCAMORE – Police arrested a motorcyclist who reached 100 mph while fleeing Tuesday, authorities said.

Cory Volberding, 20, of the 600 block of Braeburn Road, East Dundee, was charged with aggravated fleeing, fictitious driver’s license, speeding and criminal damage, according to a DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office news release. 

About 9:42 a.m., DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputies learned that Volberding had fled from a Kane County Sheriff’s deputy at more than 100 mph, according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office.

Police sighted Volberding driving west on Plank Road near Route 23 in Sycamore and he took off again when he saw the deputy, the release states.

Volberding drove through a red light and turned left at the intersection of Plank and Route 23, accelerating to as fast as 70 mph on Route 23, authorities said. Police later caught Volberding on South Main Street in Sycamore after residents pointed him out to police.

Volberding was arrested and taken to the DeKalb County Jail.

He also was charged with failure to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk, improper display of license plates, violation of classification, disobeying a stop sign and disobeying a red light. 

His next court date is scheduled for today.
