A 36-year-old Guelph man was charged with stunt driving Thursday after police say he was observed speeding, weaving in and out of traffic and popping a wheelie.  

At approximately 3:30 p.m., police saw a motorcycle travelling east on Stone Road past Gordon Street at a high rate of speed, swerving through traffic.  

The motorcycle was observed going at speeds in excess of 120 km/h while weaving in and out of traffic without using a signal. The motorcycle continued to pop a wheelie, driving on only the rear tire for approximately 30 meters. The motorcycle continued, turning southbound, failing to stop at a clearly marked stop sign. 

Police followed the driver, safely from a distance before locating the motorcycle and its driver parked in a west end driveway. 

The male was charged with stunt driving, resulting in a 30-day license suspension and the motorcycle being impounded for 14 days.
