Wheelie-popping motorcyclist tops 150 mph, pauses to use cell phone

speeding teenage motorcyclist who popped a wheelie on a North Dakota interstate and then opened up the throttle to more than 150 miles per hour took enough care to pull over before using his cell phone.

By the time authorities caught up with the suspect and his 1000cc Honda CBR, he was sitting in a ditch in Minnesota talking on his cell phone and promptly was arrested, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

The motorcyclist, from Fargo, N.D., waived extradition and was returned to North Dakota to face charges of reckless driving and fleeing police.

According to the patrol:

The wild and woolly 35-minute scene began shortly before 4 p.m. Sunday, when a state trooper spotted the motorcyclist on Interstate Hwy. 29 in Fargo "riding a wheelie past several other motorists."

The trooper, in pursuit, radioed for help. A second trooper also couldn't stop the motorcyclist, whose "speeds exceeded 150 mph as the suspect fled out of the Fargo area on I-29 southbound" and "weaved through traffic in [a] construction zone, creating a gap between himself and the trooper."

About 4:30 p.m., with the chase suspended, a Cass County deputy in Minnesota found the motorcyclist "sitting in the ditch talking on his cell phone" south of Moorhead.

Amusing, considering that day on the interstate was probably very boring.

The arresting cops, judge, and prosecutor should be used as speed bumps.
