CHP arrests one motorcyclist, searches for another after Cuesta Grade traffic stop

San Luis Obispo, CA (January 3, 2017) —  One motorcyclist has been arrested and officers are looking for a second one after a pursuit that led officials down Highway 101 on Tuesday afternoon.

A California Highway Patrol officer stopped three motorcyclists on the Cuesta Grade at about 2:30 p.m., according to CHP Officer J.W. Townsend. One of the motorcyclists yielded, but the other two sped off. It is not yet known why the officer conducted the original stop, Townsend said.

Officials arrested one of the motorcyclists as he was coming out of a Shell gas station on Los Osos Valley Road and Madonna Road in San Luis Obispo, Townsend said. The man was wearing a Hells Angels vest with a Ventura patch.
