The motorcyclist then attempted to run away but was arrested after a brief foot chase.

He was identified as Dustin Edward Cooper, 31, and had an outstanding no bail arrest warrant from the state's Department of Corrections.

The motorcycle Cooper was riding had been reported stolen out of Concord, police said.
