A group of seven bikers was stopped and arrested Monday afternoon when police in Suffolk County allegedly tracked them driving recklessly on the Long Island Expressway for more than 10 exits, Suffolk County police said.
The biker troop was busted Oct. 14 after two motorists called 911 reporting the group was “weaving in and out of traffic.” A highway patrol officer was dispatched the scene and followed the motorcycle for approximately 10 exits.
Police said the officers “witnessed the motorcyclists driving recklessly.” Police said the group began to slow near Exit 63 in Farmingville, which allowed a second highway patrol officer to pull out in front of the group. All seven motorcycles pulled to the right shoulder.
The seven were charged with reckless driving and other vehicle and traffic violations, police said. They are: Edward Gianino, 25, of Farmingdale; Emilio Morales, 28, of Brooklyn; Ian Glass, 20, of Farmingdale; Nicholas Belletti, 28, of Great Neck; Oskar Bucki, 20, of Glendale; David Golaszewski, 20, of Glendale; and Victor Dasilva, 33, of Farmingdale.
They were all released on appearance tickets and will be arraigned at a later date. All seven motorcycles were also impounded.
