Casper Police: There is No Ban on Motorcycle Jacket Patches

Contrary to a social media firestorm, the Casper Police Department has not banned motorcyclists wearing jackets with patches during an upcoming parade, its spokeswoman said Wednesday.

"We are not banning them in any way, shape or form," Rebekah Ladd said.

Every May, the local ABATE organization sponsors a major motorcycle ride to mark motorcycle awareness month because the weather is getting more pleasant and more bikers will be on the road, Ladd said.

"As part of that, the PD wants to protect them as they are going through town; I think they typically expect up to 400 bikers to participate in this parade," she said, adding the department will provide an escort.

The department had requested, but by no mean mandated, that bikers not wear patches or insignia identifying organizational affiliations so the ride could speak for itself as a safety-promoting event, Ladd said.

Deputies: Man chased motorcycle riders off road, fires gun in road rage incident

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The driver of a pickup truck repeatedly drove into a group of motorcyclists, Sunday, chasing them for about 20 miles as they tried to get away from him, and fired a gun at least twice at them, according to investigators.

“It’s called road rage,” said Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office Corporal Doug Rainwater. “He was so engulfed in anger, for whatever reason, he just didn’t like the fact that they [the bikers] were driving up [Georgia Highway] 400 on a sunny Sunday.”

Fortunately, no one was injured.

The pickup truck driver, identified by the sheriff’s office as 44-year-old Christopher Brechka of Dawsonville, is facing charges of felony aggravated assault with a gun and reckless conduct, a misdemeanor.

The investigation is still underway and the sheriff’s office said Brechka could face additional charges.
