Motorcyclist Found Guilty Of Speeding To Elude

On the afternoon of Saturday, May 9th, Great Smoky Mountains ranger Jeff Duckett became involved in a pursuit of a speeding and fleeing sport Suzuki motorcycle southbound on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The operator, Shaun Dunn, 24, refused to stop despite Duckett having activated his cruiser’s emergency lights and siren. Within minutes, Smokies ranger Mike Scheid set up a stationary position near the junction of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. While posted with emergency lights and siren activated on his marked patrol car, Scheid attempted to stop Dunn, but Dunn swerved around Scheid’s vehicle at a high rate of speed and continued onto US Highway 441, entering Great Smoky Mountains. Rangers continued pursuing Dunn southbound onto the Cherokee Indian Reservation. At the point where rangers were planning to defer the pursuit to the Cherokee Police Department units, Dunn was met by a Cherokee PD officer traveling northbound who attempted to block his escape. Dunn slowed to a very low speed and attempted to swerve around the officer’s marked patrol car in a deceptive move, but he crashed into the curb and Cherokee PD car. Scheid and several Cherokee PD officers arrested Dunn, who later confessed to his unlawful actions. In May, Dunn was indicted by a federal grand jury for violating, via the assimilated crimes act, a North Carolina general statute known as speeding to elude arrest – a felony. On August 5th, Dunn was found guilty as charged on all counts in a jury trial at district court. On August 25th, he was sentenced to a concurrent sentence of five months active confinement and a year’s supervised probation, including seven months home confinement, and ordered to pay restitution to the government for damages incurred in the pursuit. NPS special agent Kirby Styles and ranger Joshua Frazier assisted with the investigation and follow up on this case. This incident was recorded on Scheid’s in-car digital recording system, which proved to be critical trial evidence along with Dunn’s taped confession. Scheid was the case officer.
