Rolling Roadblock Foils Motorcyclist Bent on Roadway Mayhem

Rider's privilege to drive in the state of Maryland was suspended and the motorcycle he was operating was unregistered and uninsured

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (Aug. 29, 2016)—YouTube is full of helmet-cam video of the new breed of young motorcyclists hell-bent on performing dangerous stunts on public roads and taking police on high speed pursuits. In more cases than not, the riders leave the police far behind in their rear view mirrors. Police in Calvert Co., who are no strangers to high speed pursuits, on Saturday beat the odds and managed to stop one rider who had reached speeds of 106 MPH. A rolling roadblock of patrol cars left the 33-year-old Mitchellville rider with no where to go, so he attempted to pass on the grassy median where he promptly lost control and crashed. The man was taken into custody and subsequently transported to Calvert Memorial Hospital to receive medical treatment.

On August 27, Calvert County Sheriff's Office's Dfc Gott observed a motorcycle traveling at an extremely high rate of speed southbound on Rt. 4. Dfc. Gott clocked the vehicles speed with his agency issued radar at 106 MPH in the posted 55 mile per hour zone. The motorcycle was splitting traffic, making unsafe lane changes and driving on the center line between vehicles in the area of Rt. 4 and Ball Rd.

Police say Dfc. Gott and other units attempted to catch up to the motorcycle to get it stopped. Dfc. Trigg was in the area and located the vehicle still operating recklessly on Rt. 4 near Parran Rd. The motorcycle made a U-turn and began travelling north on Rt. 4 at an extremely high rate of speed. Dfc. Trigg activated his emergency equipment and notified the Control Center that he was engaged in a vehicle pursuit. The motorcycle continued north at over 100 MPH while splitting traffic and passing vehicles.

Sgt. Basham and other units stopped traffic at Rt. 4 and Old Field Lane to prevent the motorcycle from travelling into the congestion of Prince Frederick. As the motorcycle approached the area where traffic was shut down, the operator made an abrupt U-Turn and began travelling south on Rt. 4. The units that had been pursuing the motorcycle were south of the intersection of Old Field Lane and were able to get in front of the motorcycle to get it stopped. Dfc. Trigg and Dfc. Gott attempted to slow the motorcycle by conducting a rolling road block in both lanes of south bound Rt. 4. The motorcycle attempted to pass the marked patrol units by driving into the median strip. When the motorcycle entered the soft grassy median the driver lost control and was ejected from the motorcycle. When the driver was ejected his body struck the trunk of Dfc. Gott's patrol vehicle causing minor damage to the CCSO patrol car.

The motorcycle operator was identified as Dennis Deonte Green. Green's privilege to drive in the state of Maryland was suspended and the motorcycle he was operating was unregistered and uninsured. Green was charged with numerous payable traffic violations as well as several must appear violations to include fleeing and eluding and driving on a suspended license.
