DETROIT – Detroit police issued a warning about the legality of all-terrain vehicles and minibikes after riders zoomed through rush hour traffic Tuesday.
Police said many of the vehicles riders were on are not legal on Michigan roads. They broke up the group of riders Tuesday but didn't issue citations for reckless driving.
While police want to stop the riders, they are in a tricky place after Michigan State Police Trooper Mark Bessner used a Taser while chasing a teen riding on an ATV. The teen, Damon Grimes, died.
Because of this, officers will not chase off-road vehicles, but they will impound ATVs and minibikes.
