MO­TOR­CY­CLISTS KEEP­ING AREA AGEN­CIES BUSY

The Denver Post - - NEWS - — Den­ver Post staff re­ports

Dozens of mo­tor­cy­clists buzzed into Den­ver on Sun­day, ral­ly­ing around the city as po­lice from mul­ti­ple agen­cies mo­bi­lized to track them and make ar­rests.

One mo­tor­cy­cle caught fire at a stop along Speer Boule­vard near El­itch Gar­dens. Den­ver po­lice on mo­tor­cy­cles and fire­fight­ers raced to­ward it. Den­ver po­lice and their coun­ter­parts in Com­merce City, Lake­wood, Aurora, Green­wood Vil­lage and Ara­pa­hoe County ar­rested five rid­ers, ac­cord­ing to a break­down pro­vided by Den­ver po­lice spokesman John White.

Po­lice ar­rested mo­tor­cy­cle rid­ers for ob­struct­ing streets, be­ing par­ties to a crime, care­less driv­ing and reck­less driv­ing, White said.

The po­lice also tick­eted 10 rid­ers for not hav­ing li­cense plates or “ob­structed plates.” Po­lice im­pounded 11 cars and mo­tor­cy­cles.

The State Pa­trol and Colorado De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion got in­volved, White said. No es­ti­mate for the to­tal num­ber of mo­tor­cy­clists was pro­vided.

Traf­fic safety en­forcers were on alert this week­end an­tic­i­pat­ing mo­tor­cy­clists pass­ing through Den­ver on their way to the mo­tor­cy­cle rally in Sturgis, S.D., which started Fri­day.
