'Baby Jesus,' Motorcyclist Who Performed Stunts During Police Pursuit, Surrenders
Jesus "Baby Jesus" Gomez appeared to taunt pursuing police on a Texas highway by performing stunts on his motorcycle.
Baby Jesus is through with raising hell.
A Texas daredevil who appeared to taunt cops during a high-speed pursuit on a trafficked highway back in August turned himself into custody Wednesday morning before being released, police and court officials confirmed.
Jesus Sebastian Gomez, 22, was booked at the Tarrant County Sherrif's Office on a felony warrant for evading arrest with a vehicle back on Aug. 10, the Blue Mound Police Department revealed on Facebook.
Footage released by Blue Mount Police Department from the officer’s dashcam that day show a motorcyclist who cops dubbed “the stunt rider” weaving around SUVs and a semi as a police siren blares, reports The Bellingham Herald.
For minutes, the motorcyclist, who cops identified as Gomez, repeatedly peers backward before and after performing standup wheelies.
Five days after the incident, which seemed to suggest Gomez, nicknamed "Baby Jesus," managed to avoid getting captured, Blue Mount Police posted a direct plea to the thrill-seeker, asking him to face his $15,000 felony warrant:
"You have a few options: 1) Turn yourself in and pay a cash bond to prepare for court. 2) Call a bail bondsman or an attorney to post your bond. 3) Run.”
But the post warned Gomez he would be wise to not pick the third option.
"We don’t recommend the 3rd option. You already see where that has gotten you," the sardonic Facebook post reads.
But Gomez’s time in the fast lane as came to a halt as he surrendered to authorities, confirmed in a subsequent Blue Mound Police post on social media.
“Thank you for sharing our post and getting the word out there,” the post read, replete with a mugshot.
So far, the stuntman hasn’t been formally charged by Tarrant County prosecutors, a court official confirmed to Oxygen.com.
