Police Helicopter Tracks Down NJ Motorcyclist
A NJ motorcyclist was tracked down and arrested at work after he eluded police every day for a week on his daily commute through Berkeley Township, Pine Beach, South Toms River and Beachwood.
Christopher Lane, 23, of Browns Mills was arrested and charged with second degree eluding and numerous motor vehicle violations shortly after he arrived at work 8 a.m. Thursday.
Lane, who is also believed to be a persistent toll violator, was seen by police blatantly disregarding numerous traffic laws and public safety on five days over the past week and flipped his middle finger at police as he drove by them Thursday morning.
The State Police Aviation Unit set up aerial surveillance over the area where Lane had been seen, and spotted the motorcyclist speeding up Route 9 near Ocean Gate Drive.
