DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Authorities in Devils Lake have filed charges against motorcyclists who allegedly committed a number of traffic offenses last month and then posted a video of their activities online.
Police Chief Keith Schroeder says that the video was posted to YouTube on Easter Sunday. He says authorities used the video to determine the identity of the motorcycle riders and pinpoint where and when the violations occurred.
Schroeder says six people face charges including exhibition driving, speeding, reckless driving and driving without a motorcycle license.
Schroeder says a seventh person in the video was ticketed for speeding after being clocked by a Highway Patrol trooper going more than 110 mph the day the video was filmed. Authorities believe the motorcyclists posted the video to criticize the patrol.
