Illegally wheeling in the Kalamazoo, MI area.

There is a group that goes out constantly around here. The one kid has even received a $450 ticket for doing this, and he continues to do so.

Last night he managed to get stuck in a mud hole. He is still there. How the hell do you get the point across to these people that this is not ok?

I told him I would come get him if he was not on illegal land. They post all their stuff on facebook to.

I'm guessing if you left him in the hole the problem would resolve it self!

Oh trust me. I already said if he was not illegally wheeling I'd come get him out. All of his buddies are trying.... one of them will no doubt be killed I'm sure...

they broke a strap so talked about using chains....then a kid posted he has a 5k winch, and thinks you can use a boat anchor to throw on the ground to hold him while winching.

Suggest having them contact a conservation officer to help with the extraction.

Call a DNR Office or State Trooper for them, or the land owner, they are typically well versed in vehicle recovery.

How are you associated? Friends of yours? Younger brother? Sounds like they are morons, but don't deserve a death penalty.

Any damage associated with them trespassing can be charged.
Any fluids leaked and the cost to clean up those fluids can be charged.
Any damaging items "left" like a tie rod that may cause a ruptured tire or track may be found repairs if you can prove it is the trespassers item.

Lawyer up first(covering my butt here).
But, damages to property that is placed there unlawfully are not the home owners liability.

With the title you posted, I'm pretty sure this thread is already being monitored by the authorities.
Post the location, and the issue will be resolved.

I'd call it in. Seems like he'd learn after the first $$$$ he had to pay.

One group in kzoo posted a map of all their wheeling spots, of which maybe 3 were legal. They told me that this group was started by people who cant afford to legally wheel, cant afford to go to parks, therefore do what they can with what they have. Needless to say they deleted all my posts from their facebook page...

One of their favorite hang outs was behind the TGIF on west main just east of 131.
I dont know if this is where this truck is stuck at, but its a good place to start
