Truly, nothing says cool like a gang of scooter riding teenagers.
Hundreds of them turned up on Sunday in the city centre of Brisbane, Australia, clashing with police and leading to several arrests. Yes, you read that correctly.
But, look only words can say so much. Here’s the vision of the scooter-induced madness, as per 7 News, who dubbed it “organised chaos.”
Queensland Police said in a statement online the riders were riding dangerously, apparently travelling “the wrong way down the road and were weaving in and out of traffic.” It said the ride appeared to be organised on social media — it’s the fourth instalment of an event dubbed “Street Jam.”
In the midst of the madness, you can hear the kids chanting “FREE JACK,” which refers to Jack Dauth, an 18-year-old Sydney Instagrammer and scooter rider who was arrested in the fracas. Dauth has over 170,000 followers on YouTube and 160,000 followers on Instagram.
“I got arrested AF,” Dauth said on Instagram, promoting a YouTube video he’d post on his channel later on Monday, after being released.
Here’s another report from 9 News, which includes footage of punches being thrown at the event (including some from police), and plenty of kids wearing mall brand skate gear throwing shakas on camera.
The scooter-riding kids were sent home by police, who also liaised with parents to come and collect their children. Nothing more hardcore than being picked up by your folks when you’re sticking it to the 5-0.
Scooter or die, we guess.
