Police arrest several 'reckless' bikers on LIE

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Suffolk County cops arrested several motorcycle riders they say were driving recklessly on the Long Island Expressway on Monday morning.

It happened after police received several 911 calls about the bikers before noon, so highway division officers responded, police said.

The cops saw the bikers "driving recklessly" eastbound near Exit 63 and pulled over seven of them, Suffolk Police said. Officers took the seven bikers into custody and impounded their bikes.

Police identified the men under arrest as Edward Gianino, Emilio Morales, Ian Glass, Nicholas Belletti, Oskar Bucki, David Golaszewski, and Victor Dasilva.

The arrests come a few weeks after a highly publicized incident in New York City where a confrontation between a SUV driver and a huge group of motorcyclists ended in violence.

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
