A Plant City, Florida man was arrested Sunday morning after leading law enforcement officials on a high-speed pursuit overnight on a motorcycle with a fake license plate that read “MCLOVIN.”
FOX 13 in Tampa reported that according to troopers, 30-year-old Jesse Rivera was seen weaving in and out of cars on his motorcycle at approximately 110 mph in a 45 mph zone at approximately 12:15 a.m. of Sunday.
The motorcycle, authorities said, had a fake Hawaiian tag “MCLOVIN,” a reference to the movie “Superbad.” In the film, a character has a fake Hawaiian ID named “McLovin”.

A Florida Highway Patrol trooper pulled up behind Rivera and turned on the patrol car’s lights and sirens, but when Rivera turned around and saw a trooper behind him, he allegedly began to speed away.
The trooper reportedly turned off his lights and sirens and observed the motorcyclist from a distance, the station reported. While he watched from afar, an officer from the St. Petersburg Police Department and a Pinellas County sheriff’s deputy attempted to conduct traffic stops, although Rivera was never stopped for either.
Still watching from a distance, the trooper reportedly said Rivera crossed the Gandy Bridge at about 15 mph over the speed limit before exiting the bridge and making a series of turns until he came to a stop at the intersection of SR-60 and 50th Street.

Rivera then allegedly turned and saw the trooper and then tried to kick his bike into gear, but a gear slipped, police said, killing the engine.
He then tried to get the motorcycle back into gear, picked up the bike and went around the blocking patrol car. Instead, the trooper got out of his vehicle, grabbed Rivera and pulled him off the bike.
In the process of pulling Rivera off his bike, the motorcycle fell on both the trooper and the suspect.
