Wow, Meanwhile In Boston: Police Track Down A Crew Of Dirtbike Riders On The Freeway But They Scatter Like Ants!!
A reckless crew of ATV and dirt bike riders who were being tracked by Boston cops as they cruised through the area were stopped in their tracks by troopers on the Southeast Expressway today, where a handful of them were arrested, more than a dozen bikes were seized and one of them was shot in the foot.
State troopers set up a roadblock for the riders about 5:18 p.m. near Exit 18 on Interstate 93. Overlooking the highway from a nearby overpass, Herald photographer Nicolaus Czarnecki captured the melee as a team of troopers — some with guns drawn — tried to corral the pack of 25 to 35 off-road riders as they desperately attempted to get away.
Some jumped off their bikes and ran, others hopped onto the back of other bikes, and some even tried to ride over the median and into oncoming traffic.
