WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – The man police say orchestrated a social media-driven ATV outing on Trumbull County roads in August is back in jail.
Trevor Hall, 22, was cited in Warren Thursday for riding a dirt bike on city streets and driving under suspension. According to the citation, he was pulled over near the intersection of Homewood Avenue S.E. and South Street S.E.
On Friday, Hall appeared in court, where he pleaded not guilty to the charge. He told the judge that he had not committed a crime.
“I was on a pedal bicycle, your Honor, that has what’s called a piggy back motor on it,” he told the judge. “I got stopped by Niles [Police]. He didn’t write me a ticket. He said there was nothing he could do. On the way home from my girlfriend’s house, ’cause we have a baby together that’s 5-weeks-old, I was on the way to my house, I got pulled over by the Warren cop on Homewood, and he wrote me this ticket.”
But Judge Terry Ivanchak sent Hall to Trumbull County Jail, where he will be held without bail — citing a violation of his probation.
Last month, Hall was placed on probation for reckless operation and was arrested a few days after the “Bikes Up, Guns Down Warren City Ride Out,” in which approximately 70 off-road vehicles drove throughout Trumbull County, popping wheelies and driving through red lights.
Hall is due back in court at 10:15 a.m. October 16.
