RAPID CITY, S.D. — Authorities say that several members of the Bandidos Motorcyle Club were cited with violations after a large group of bikers were stopped in Rapid City on Thursday evening.
The traffic stop was initiated on I-190 near Omaha Street. Law enforcement officers signaled for a few of the bikers to pull over after reports that they were driving erratically on the interstate near Rapid City.
According to Brendyn Medina with the RCPD, ‘when you pull over one of the group, the rest tend to stop as well.’ Sixteen bikers pulled over in total. An unspecified number of them were cited with moving violations and concealed carry violations.
The RCPD says more officers were present during the stop due to the number of motorcycles involved. According to Medina, authorities are aware of a large Bandidos gathering occurring in the Black Hills and have a plan in place to ensure public safety.
