Motor who stole police barricade and posted video online, finally arrested

A video showing a couple of bikers dragging a police barricade had gone viral on social media.

On New Year’s eve, in order to keep a check on miscreants, cops in many cities had put up barricades at important points in the city. This was done in Chennai as well. But here, some bikers thought of doing something which they will now be regretting all their life.

At one such point, where the police were blocking bikers for using dividers and rash riding, something unusual happened. A few of these bikers escaped along with the barricade by dragging the divider with their bikes. They made a video of it which went viral on social media.

Later, one of the bikers even made a selfie video bragging about how they escaped the helpless cops and took the barricade with them. This irked the cops. Not only the bikers had broken rules, they were now bragging about it on social media.

Chennai Police took this incident so seriously that they formed 4 separate special teams to root them out and even set up a helpline so people can tip them off. Thanks to alert citizens, the cops soon got leads. The main culprit, who is pulling the barricade, and who also made the video, is known as Peter. He got arrested last night.
