Police: Motorcyclist pinned in crash, had drugs in boot

MUSKEGON, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3)- Police in Muskegon are investigating after a motorcyclist was involved in a crash Tuesday and officers found drugs in his boot.

It happened around 6:45pm at the intersection of E. Sherman Blvd. and Harris Street.

When police arrived on scene fire officials were freeing the motorcyclist's leg, which had been pinned beneath his bike when a vehicle pulled in front of him.

The 52-year-old Muskegon man had been riding down E. Sherman when the driver of the other vehicle involved pulled in front of him. The motorcyclist laid down his bike in an attempt to avoid the crash.

Emergency responders tried to remove the man's boot to treat his injured foot but he was uncooperative. He eventually allowed them to remove it and police say an illicit narcotic substance was found.

The motorcyclist was taken to the hospital for treatment. Charges are pending for possession of the illegal narcotic and operating a motorcycle without an endorsement.

The other driver was cited with a right of way violation.
