Police arrest dirt bike riders following large rally (2/20/17)

NEWARK - Newark police arrested several people following a dirt bike and all-terrain vehicle rally.

Police say the riders damaged police vehicles and disrupted traffic Sunday afternoon. The riders came from several cities including New York City, Baltimore and Philadelphia for the illegal rally.

Newark Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose said in a statement that police arrested seven people, confiscated 19 transport vehicles and seized 10 ATVs.

Newark police began a strict campaign to stop motorists from illegally riding dirt bikes and ATVs on city streets in 2016.

The Associated Press wire services helped contribute to this report.
