MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WKRN) – An 18-year-old in Mt. Juliet is out on bond after authorities say he evaded officers on a dirt bike until he ran out of gas.

Police say they were called to CEVA Logistics around 10:30 a.m. last Friday on reports someone on a dirt bike was trespassing.

The caller said the person was driving recklessly through the parking lot and jumping a hill on CEVA’s property, noting it’s an on-going problem.

According to a press release, an officer tried to stop and warn the person, later identified as Jordan Rogers, but he sped away.
