Police said he and an unknown man were driving dirt bikes without safety gear and nearly collided with several cars and a police cruiser in the 2400 block of North Slappey Boulevard on Saturday, August 25.

APD said officers tried several times to make a traffic stop. But when they got close to the two men, they would slow down, stop and then pull off.

One of the bike riders pulled out in front of a police vehicle and then yelled obscenities at the officers, according to APD.

The Albany Police Department says it has a zero-tolerance stance on operating off-road vehicles on city streets.

"These men put people's lives in danger as well as theirs during a dangerous game they played going in circles in and out of traffic on a busy street such as Slappey Boulevard. It is extremely dangerous because sometimes they don't have lights and the situation can prove to be deadly if a collision occurs," said APD Uniform Officer Corporal Darryl Jones.

Police said the two men should be considered dangerous.

Anyone with any information on the unknown dirt bike driver or on Jackson and his whereabouts is urged to call CrimeSTOPPERS at (229) 436-TIPS or the Albany Police Department at (229) 431-2100.
