Anarchy In The U.S.: Swarms Of ATVs And Dirt Bikes Terrorize Ohio As Police Gives Chase

This bizarre incident took place last Sunday, when dozens of dirt bikes and ATVs took to the streets in Lakewood and Cleveland, Ohio, zooming past other traffic and even on lawns.

According to the police, the group contained about 100 dirt bikes and ATVs traveling “in a reckless manner” and ignoring traffic signals, reports News 5 Cleveland.

Because the riders refused to stop when officers attempted to pull them over, the authorities had to block cross traffic at certain Lakewood intersections in order to protect other motorists from getting into collisions.

“They are putting everybody in jeopardy,” stated Lakewood Police Chief, Tim Malley. “For nobody to get hit or involved in an accident, it is really kind of remarkable.”

So far, five people have been arrested, despite one witness seeing and filming at least 40 dirt bikes and ATVs in Cleveland’s Warehouse District, near the Flats East Bank. A sixth was apprehended later when he dropped his bike.

This isn’t the first time something like that has happened in the Greater Cleveland Metropolitan area; last year, a business owner reported seeing at least 200 riders swerving around cars and putting oncoming traffic at risk.

“Kind of like anarchy out there with these kids. It’s gotta be stopped,” said the business owner.

    I love this country.

    • Mind Synthetic

      yeah, nuke it and let fallout game begin

  • Research Janitor

    Typical behavior for that crowd.

    • Jay

      I wouldn’t say it’s typical but if they want to do that it should be organized. Some motorcycle gangs have the concept on how it’s done.

      • Хиллари сосет киску

        No, he’s right, typical.

        • Jay

          You’re both wrong.

          • Хиллари сосет киску

            You should try some vagisil and perhaps a new pad.

          • Jay

            Just saying it’s pretty prejudice to say all young blacks do these types of thing. It’s fine that you disagree.

    • endrflare

      who is “that crowd”?

      • Research Janitor

        Watch the video.

      • ChrisInIL

        They are otherwise known as “morons” or “asshats” (in the current vernacular). They communicate via social media, and believe it is somehow unique and interesting to congregate and raise hell in a manner that is dangerous to not only themselves, but to others on the roadways. They operate non-road-going vehicles illegally and recklessly.

        That crowd.

      • Хиллари сосет киску

        Do you really need to “ax”?

        • uS’gedlemba

          Do you have problem with other races?

  • karmat

    Let me guess, their riding areas have all been closed down and now the city can’t figure out why they’re all pissed?

    • дапвт

      No. They don’t care about riding areas. It’s about showing off in public for them. Majority of those bikes are also stolen or not registered.

    • ChrisInIL

      Yes, someone else’s actions forced them to behave dangerously and illegally.

      When one is a moron, it is never his or her own fault.

  • javier

    sweet , way better than the ridiculous sideshows they got in oakland

  • Mr. EP9

    Had something similar happen in my neck of the woods awhile back. Last I recall, over 500 bikes and ATVs got impounded and probably scrapped. I can’t remember when it happened though.

    • brn

      Nice.

  • дапвт

    Same thing happens in Boston every summer. They block traffic, run red lights, go down the wrong way, ride on sidewalks and almost run down pedestrians. F them all. Majority of those bikes are either stolen or unregistered anyway.

  • Six_Tymes

    I hope the same happens to them when they grow up, if they ever do. I can see doing stupid silly stuff when your young, but this is over the top idiotic

  • Thunderbolt

    The best way to stop these guys is to string a sharp cable across the street.

    • Хиллари сосет киску

      Right on, bro!

  • Knotmyrealname

    Bikers being tools. Wow.

  • sidewaysspin

    Kids having fun.

  • Clearly this police chief has never heard of stop sticks. Nor has his officers. Someone buy them some 1990s technology, please.

  • Paul

    I don’t know, but I think that cop in the Explorer was living dangerously.

  • Craig

    As you can see [and have seen time and time again] the police are useless. They can’t even protect a community from a bunch of f-heads on dirt bikes.
