Man who escaped Mesa police custody dies after crash

A man who escaped Mesa Police Department custody earlier in the month died after crashing a stolen motorcycle this week, the Department said Saturday. 

Anthony Rosales faced a misdemeanor shoplifting charge and was facing “a few” warrants for non-violent drug charges when he was arrested earlier this month, police spokesperson Det. Richard Encinas said.

Rosales was sitting on a bench in a fenced holding area outside of a jail when the arresting officer turned away to complete booking paperwork. Rosales was able to leave the holding area as the door was closing and made it into the neighborhood in “less than a minute,” Encinas said.

A brief search for Rosales was unsuccessful at the time, he said.

Police encountered Rosales again Tuesday, Encinas said, after he ran a red light on Broadway Road at 63rd Street and crashed into another vehicle. 

Police determined the motorcycle he was riding was stolen.

In case your bike produces lower than that due to a drained charging system, the lithium battery will not charge, and it will in the … Read More

In the late 1950s, a new competitor by the name of Honda began nipping at Harley-Davidson’s heels. When your bold and brash motorcycles begin losing ground to compact imported bikes and scooters, how do you strike back?

For Harley-Davidson, the answer was this: The Harley-Davidson Topper. Produced for only five years, and with production estimates hovering in the four-digit range, it holds the honor of being Harley’s only foray into the world of scooters, so far anyway. With one coming up at Mecum’s Las Vegas Motorcycles 2022 auction, it can also hold a place in your garage.
