“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.
