A Johnson City man was cited with multiple charges after police saw him reportedly drag racing on his motorcycle on June 12, according to a police report.

According to the report, a Johnson City police officer saw two motorcycles speeding on West State of Franklin Road traveling eastbound and when the officer tried to stop the motorcycles, the lead motorcycle turned onto Sevier Street and then onto Lamont Street. Police were able to stop the motorcycle when it slowed due to gravel on the road.

Officers made contact with the driver, Eddie Lee Perkins, 46, 1156 Huffine Road, who allegedly had “hazed eyes” and smelled of alcohol.
