YARMOUTH POLICE ARREST TWO MOTORCYCLISTS FOR TO FAILING TO STOP
On Sunday, April 16, 2017, at approximately 5:30PM, Yarmouth Police Department Patrol Officer Ryan Brule observed two motorcycles travelling west bound on Route 28. The bikes were riding in tandem, one outside the white break down lane and the other bike was riding in the roadway. Both bikes were extremely loud and their operation was causing a traffic backup on Route 28.

Patrol Officer Brule activated all of his cruiser’s emergency blue lights and began to stop the two motorcycles. They did not stop and went through a red light at the intersection of Higgins Crowell Road and Route 28.

Patrol Officer Brule observed the motorcycles then turn left on to Standish Way. One of the motorcycles crossed over in to the oncoming lane and nearly struck an oncoming vehicle head on. They continued on Standish Road, and then took another left turn onto Bradford Road. They drove down Bradford and then took an abrupt right turn onto Mayflower Road. They then pulled into the driveway of 41A Mayflower Road and both jumped off their bikes—one a red Honda Ruckus and the other a black home- made mini-chopper—walking towards the house, where one other male party was standing.

Patrol Officer Brule encountered the two men and both became verbally combative and uncooperative. Patrol Officer Conor Burnham arrived a short time later and both subjects were eventually identified and placed under arrest. Both were transported to Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters—subsequently released on $40 bail after processing—and are scheduled for arraignment in the Barnstable District Court Tuesday, April 18, 2017.
