High-speed chase ends in arrest

– CHP press release

On Sunday, July, 6, 2014, at approximately 8:03 P.M., a California Highway Patrol (CHP) officer assigned to the CHP Mammoth Lakes Resident Post paired with a CHP sergeant, observed a red sport motorcycle traveling southbound on US-395 at Mammoth Yosemite Airport well in excess of 100 miles per hour (MPH).


The officer attempted to overtake the motorcycle, which continued in excess of 130 MPH, splitting lanes (riding between vehicles), and passing vehicles on the right.  After approximately 30 miles in excess of 130 MPH, the rider yielded to the right shoulder of US-395 at Pine Creek Road, north of Bishop, California.

The officer contacted the rider, Aaron J. Bieker, 25, of San Diego, California, and placed him under arrest for reckless driving and driving on a suspended license.  Mr. Bieker was booked into the Mono County Jail in Bridgeport, California.  Mr. Bieker’s motorcycle, a 2014 Yamaha FZ-09, was impounded for thirty days.

Officers from the CHP Bishop Area office assisted with the arrest.

    Now “trouble” is going to post how this is another example of “clogging up the jails” and how this unlicensed driver, putting many lives in danger,when finally stopped,should have just been warned and sent on his merry way….and then,going on to say how an incident and arrest like this hurts our economy and keeps tourists from wanting to come here.

      Wayne, you read my mind, again.

      You see folks, this is how simpletons (Sheep/Obedient type) will take a incident like this and let it overrule valid concerns other’s have within the public. Yes we need Law enforcement, but we don’t need to encourage them when they drift further and further away from actual service to the public…. It’s very normal today to see industries and institutions doing anything and everything in order to seek self-preservation, you would have to be a fool to think Law Enforcement is exempt from that.

      I mean why is it we never hear these stories about officers outing another cop for doing something wrong? I’ll say it, because the tend to get this “us Vs them” attitude, and now we live in a culture of fear, where this security complex industry is taking info on everybody in the name of combating “terrorism”, which militarized the police forces, with our own tax dollars… Yes I still believe the police are supposed to work for us.

      Sorry to say it but we live in a sad society, I mean say we had Muslim type individual’s go and do all the school shootings we had in the last 5 yrs, we would have bombed and invaded every middle eastern country, but since it’s our own (american terrorists) we look the other way and can’t even get common sense gun laws passed, and all you ridiculous conservatives talking about the constitution and the 2nd amendment, when really the constitution applies to corporations, and corporations now have religious freedom? did y’all see the US’s highest court (supreme court) grant corporations religious freedom? and yet “we the people” no longer have privacy, liberty or the freedom to be responsible for what is happening to our planet..

        A big load of tripe AP. They are the Highway Patrol. Their charter is traffic enforcement. They did exactly that. No one was hurt. The idiot was riding with a suspended license. The rest of what you wrote is a psychotic rambling. You need some help.

          Hey your right! I do get a lil crazy… You know why? because the things I mention actually effect real people, so does it make you feel better about yourself to tell somebody they need help without offering any.. Yeah it’s true, I probably do, I tend to feel this world isn’t the world I want to live in sometimes..

          Desert Tortoise, you define the term “Sheeple”.

          The Daily Sheeple web site is for you! Read it every day.

    Wayne, the guy is probally out on a hundred dollar bail and speeding by your house right now. I kind hope he is!

    Obviously didn’t know the area or he would have been long gone

      Kind of hard to feel sorry or have much compassion for someone so stupid like this guy…if he had wrapped himself around a telephone pole or a tree BEFORE he hurt some innocent person or family….a reason he was driving on a suspended license…probably not the first time he did something dumb on the highway….With the 30 day hold on his “bike-bike”,and about a $700.00 impound fee to go along with it to get it back….and the reckless driving fine he’ll get,another $ 900.00 or so,hopefully he learned a lesson…..but I doubt it…

        If I had a old muscle car like I want, I’d have to push it at least once. This kid got himself a brand race bike and got caught pushing it in the middle of nowhere.. I’m glad I never got caught.

        • Desert Tortoise July 10, 2014 at 12:18 pm #

          Where is your brain Trouble? 395 isn’t exactly the middle of nowhere. Anyone who rides or drives it knows it is heavily traveled, has lots of heavy truck traffic and thus is heavily patrolled. There are lonely roads in desolate places I’m not naming if you have to see what the top speed is. 395 isn’t one of those. If you are going to play like that on a public road, don’t cry if you get caught. I paid one of those tickets myself once. Don’t care to do that again. What that idiot was doing deserved to land him in the gray bar and cost him some serious coin.

            We are so in the middle of nowhere. See any Walmart’s around?

    “stupid is as stupid does”
    Honestly, I don’t want to see guys like this laying dead in the road but I believe the best punishment for crimes like this would be for the one riding/driving like an idiot, fleeing law enforcement and putting the safety and lives of all on the road in jeopardy to crash and burn and experience a lot of pain while spending few weeks in the hospital to think about his/her decisions.

      If your going 130, your not looking in your mirrors. Bet this kid only gets a reckless conviction. Hell, it would take a mile to come to a stop.

      • Wayne Deja July 9, 2014 at 8:54 pm #

        ..A reckless conviction,and I’m thinking that extra charge that goes along with it when your going 25 MPH over the speed limit….as well as the driving on a suspended license….the big amount of $$$$ for the tow and 30 day impound fee….increase in insurance cost…and the hassle of getting back to San Diego AND the trips this 25 year old “kid” will be taking to appear in court on the charges..

        • Trouble July 11, 2014 at 10:16 am #

          You got to admit the kid has guts!

          • OHV July 11, 2014 at 4:04 pm #

            130mph is nothing now days

          • Philip Anaya July 11, 2014 at 6:59 pm #

            Thank Goodness that this ended without a crash or a collision. 130 mph is a speed that is hard on the 65mph traffic on 395 . A great film available at the Bishop Library starring Anthony Hopkins as Burt Hopkins


            was haulin at Bonneville Salt Flats back in the late 50’s at 201,851 mph in the under 1000cc motorcycle category
            Young guys with a need for speed need to be directed to Bonneville Speed Week and this Kid needs to put the brakes on until the clockers give him some thumbs up for his crazy pursuit.

    OVH…It’s “something ” if you happen to have a deer,rabbit,even a squirrel run out in front of you at that speed……you probably end up killing the animal…

    • OHV July 13, 2014 at 5:20 am #

      First thing that crossed my mine Whine D. Lots of Deer in that area, and soon as you’re on the Valley floor there’s Elk. It’s really not the place to be driving over the speed limit. 65mph is dangerous enough.
