Police chase snowmobile doing 83 along Rt. 12

OXFORD – The Oxford Police Department chased a local man after a patrol clocked his snowmobile speeding down the center of State Highway 12 allegedly traveling at 83 miles per hour in a 30 mile an hour zone within the village lines.



Timothy A. Chapman, 49, of Oxford was charged with operating a snowmobile on a state road, operating a vehicle without registration or insurance, failure to comply with a police officer and excessive speed.

The Oxford PD was forced to abandon an attempt to pull Chapman over because of worsening weather on the roadway during a winter storm on Dec. 19, at around 5:30 p.m.

“Flying down the center of the lanes going over 80 miles an hour, at first an Oxford patrol turned on their sirens and chased Mr. Chapman north along Rt. 12 and then down to County Rd. 3 before having to withdraw from the pursuit,” said Oxford Police Chief Richard Nolan.
