Police impound this motorcyle in Burlington.

There may be a saying in law enforcement circles that goes something like this: “If you pop a wheelie on your motorcycle, don’t do it in front of a cop.”

Some, however, may have missed the message.

Halton police had one such case in Burlington yesterday (July 3).

According to reports, the driver performed his wheelie stunt on Harvester Rd. near Appleby Line around 9 p.m.

Police, who happened to be on the scene, captured it all on video with their dashboard camera (video not available).

The result is the biker ended the long weekend with a 30-day driver’s license suspension and will have his motorcycle impounded for 14 days. As well, the person was also charged with having no license plate and no insurance.

Police have not released the name of the person facing the charges.
