Cops Chasing Californian Biker Gang Looks Like a Video Game Scene

It may look like a scene from a first person video game, but it’s real and it involved several police officers in cars and even a helicopter chasing a group of self-proclaimed stunt riders.

The incident recorded from the biker group’s helmet cameras appears to have taken place in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles in California (if you pause the clip at 0:33 seconds, you’ll see the Pier 1 Imports shop on Canoga Av) at an undisclosed date.

It’s a hectic scene with patrol cars and a chopper shedding light from above trying to – well, we’re not exactly sure what the cops were trying to do other than perhaps warn motorists and somewhat contain the bikers who were all over the place endangering both themselves and other road users.

You have to admit that it is a delicate and fraught situation for the police officers – they have to protect all road users, including the perpetrators who happen to be the most vulnerable of all (sans pedestrians), and somehow uphold the law as well.

At the 1:17 mark, a motorcyclist pulling a wheelie behind one of the patrol cars stumbles and falls onto the ground.

According to the author of the video nicknamed “Sitdown Steve”, some of the bikers were apprehended but most escaped. Below you’ll find his description of the incident.

“INSANE motorcycle stunt riders get chased by the police helicopter and patrol cars for riding wheelies, drifting swing multiple lanes plus doing other stunts on the street. A group of stunt riders performing extreme freestyle motorcycle stunts and tricks on public street’s and highway’s get the attention of law enforcement. Police chase a large group of bikers running from the cops.

Motorcyclist lead police officers chasing them on wild high speed pursuit. Police patrol cars at multiple times our only a few feet away from motorcycles performing drifts and wheelies throughout the entire police chase. Law enforcement use all the resource at their disposal to try and stop bikers evading arrest police even bring out a helicopter aka ghetto bird to spot light bikes running from the police patrol cars on the ground.

You’ll see one sport bike rider wreck while attempting to wheelie with cops only a few feet away. The stunt rider crashes while being chased by police cruises and helicopter spot light him above. Bike Vs Cops on the street bikers battle to out run law enforcement. A few of the stunt bike riders our eventually caught and arrested by police but most of the stunt bike riders eventually get away and out run the police by going through a tunnel under the highway to escape all police including helicopter or ghetto bird!”

    These guys are just blatant criminals. Pack mentality.

      We’re talking about the cops, right?

  • Idiot Motorcyclists

    I love the idiot biker whom bites it on his own accord. Those who cannot afford to take it to the track should not be on the public roads either. There riders give the rest of us a bad rap.

    What a bunch of immature dumbazzes.

  • thisguyhere

    i couldn’t help it but laugh at the absurdity of it all

  • Akira

    The cops should have just rammed them all… Bowling style.

  • Eric

    Armchair police tactic suggestion: spike strips.

  • Julien Lachemoi

    I kinda wish cops could get the EMP weapon we saw in Fast&Furious2 and get all those fuckers.
    A better solution would be for these “bikers” to grow a brain, but it’ll take more time.

  • joecartoon22

    america still has that cowboy and indian mentality

  • Wow I seriously can’t believe how many innocent by-standers were injured in this video! It’s seriously incredible the number of crimes against other people in this video. For real though, California needs an electric chair to control their retarded (commenters) population.
