DUI & Criminal Division

The defendant was seen on his motorcycle approaching a red light along with 2 other motorcyclists. The officer heard the cyclists roaring their engines at the light. After the light turned green, the officer observed the 2 outside motorcyclists take off hard while the defendant in the middle lane leaned forward and accelerated hard enough to burn the rear tire. The officer could hear the tire squeal and see smoke as the defendant leaned forward and swept his feet back in classic drag racing position. The defendant pulled well ahead of both other riders. The defendant was clocked at 64 mph in a 40 mph zone during this acceleration. The defendant was stopped for racing. The defendant admitted that he was “being stupid.” All of the events were caught on the officer’s in-dash camera. Result: State dropped the Racing charge.
