It was the perfect Memorial Day weekend for cruising around Dallas, Texas and motorcyclist Chris Moore, along with a group of buddies and his helmet cam was recording the gorgeous day and scenery. It was also recording a whole lot more including all sorts of bikers getting pulled over and how much slower Chris was going than the rest of traffic.
About 3 minutes or so into the video, the action starts when Chris is pulled over and the officer is telling him that he is going to confiscate his camera. It is hard to understand but part of it is:
MOORE: “Was I doing something wrong? What am I being pulled over for?”
WESTBROOK: “The whole group of you guys.”
MOORE: “No. I was not, individually. How can you pull me over?”
WESTBROOK: “The reason you’re being pulled over is because I’m going to take your camera, and we’re going to use it as evidence of in the crimes that have been committed by other bikers.”
Chris gets arrested because Westbrook tells him that he couldn’t see his license plate on his motorcycle, but Chris is claiming that was a trumped up excuse in order for the officer to take his camera. Ironically, there is no police car dash cam footage available to back up anyone’s story, but Dallas finest has launched a full investigation into this matter.
While there is no footage available from the police about Chris’s arrest, it seems there was plenty of footage available from other police car dash cam videos showing how many of the motorcyclists had been taunting the police cars and deserved to be pulled over, but Chris isn’t in any of those and was minding his own business when he got pulled over. The entire situation seems unconstitutional and we hope that the police and city of Dallas make things right with Chris as well as set a precedence for other law abiding bikers.
