Police tracked down and arrested several rowdy off-road bikers Saturday on a busy highway in Massachusetts.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said in a statement the bikers have been causing a ruckus in the city and also a safety concern, which led to their arrest on Interstate 93 South.
‘They caused a lot of problems. It was a nice day yesterday and they decided to take it on the highway and seven people were arrested,’ Walsh said, according to CBS Boston.
The bikers, who were also on all-terrain vehicles, were seen swerving through traffic in newly-released footage as police pulled up behind the crew.

‘I think they’re getting a little bold and they figure we can do this on our highways and that’s a major concern,’ Walsh said.

As many as 20 off-road vehicles were pulled from the road.
