Video shows bikers taunting California officer

A group of motorcycle riders alternately taunted and ignored an officer trying to pull them over while they popped their front wheels in the air and weaved on a California highway, a recently posted video shows.

The daytime confrontation earlier this month on Interstate 680 in Milpitas was filmed by a rider who approaches the California Highway Patrol officer and motions for him to go away.

The officer pulls ahead, and the motorcyclist waves goodbye as another rider puts a fist in the air.

The officer in the video later pulled over and waited for backup to help him follow the motorcyclists until they left the highway, California Highway Patrol Officer Ross Lee told the San Jose Mercury News. No one was arrested or cited, KGO-TV reported.

“The riders were putting not only the public in harm's way, they were putting themselves in harm's way,” Lee told the Mercury News.

He said the officer did the right thing.

“He did what was safe. The riders had no intention of being compliant,” he said.

Officials are trying to identify the person who shot the video.
