MANDEVILLE, La. - Louisiana State Police suspended a chase that went across the Causeway with a motorcyclist Tuesday afternoon for the safety of the public. 

Troop L Spokesman Trooper Nick Manale told Eyewitness News that a complaint about three motorcyclists driving recklessly in the Mandeville area Tuesday afternoon started the incident.

Manale said a trooper located one motorcyclist and attempted to pull the driver over, but he took off and was chased through Old Mandeville before getting on the Causeway. Troopers say the chase reached high speeds on the bridge, and the motorcyclist drove through a blockade on the southshore end of the bridge.

Troop B then took over, but terminated the pursuit for concerns over public safety.
