A 47-year-old Barton Street man was charged with speeding erratically down Rhode Island Street on a mini-bike and then trying to run away from police who stopped him at the intersection with Fargo Avenue about 5:45 a.m. Friday.

Kelvin Lopez was charged with reckless driving and obstructing governmental administration. He reportedly used a false name when captured in the rear of a house in the third block of Fargo after a brief foot chase.

He also charged with driving without a license, having an unregistered vehicle on the road, failing to stop at stop signs and false personation.

Police also said his mini-bike had no workable brakes
