Video: Watch the 'Ghost Rider' Roll Through Orland

Justin Jachimiec, the 22 year old who recorded his motorbike antics for YouTube, is accused of recklessly speeding and eluding cops. You tell us: dumb, really dumb or are people overreacting?

“Watch this,” a man’s voice says over the purr of a motorcycle engine. 

Within the first minute of a video on YouTube posted on Nov. 23, 2011, by “wheelerdrivebandit,” the motorcyclist speeds by a cop, popping his front wheel up into the air as he zips by. He rounds back and speeds by while the squad car’s emergency lights are flashing.

He calls himself the "Orland Ghost Rider." Cops call him . We've posted his videos here.

When police searched his home, they found a helmet, helmet camera and a stolen motorcycle. He is charged with with felony possession of a stolen vehicle, driving with a suspended license, two counts of felony fleeing and eluding police and other traffic offenses.

Patch caught up with Jachimiec Wednesday night by phone. He was watching himself on WGN-Ch. 9 News. He told us he didn't want to talk about the situation right now. 

 

What do you think?

Are felony charges justified? Got a better nickname than "Orland Ghost Rider"? Take our poll and share your view in the comments.

The police cannot walk away from public safety to spend all their resources on the heroin problem of a school district. Parents need to get involved.

You are stupid, Chris Our tax dollars pay the police to protect citizens. It would only have been a matter of time before someone was injured or killed. Also, he was violating many laws, not to mention, he was in possession of stolen property. You might feel differently if it was your property he stole. Wake up, learn to spell, and learn your antonyms and homonyms, then post comments.
