Municipal police in Bridgewater are on the lookout for a wheelie-popping dirt bike driver who gave law enforcement a one-finger salute.

"The driver failed to stop and fled from police in a dangerous manner on York Street," the Bridgewater Police Service said in a social media post about the alleged May 11 incident.

"Police did not continue attempts to stop it due to the dangerous driving, and are requesting information identifying the driver/owner of the bike."

The agency provided a still image of a person wearing tan-coloured pants and a yellow t-shirt aboard a motorbike.

The Bridgewater Police Service tried to conduct a traffic stop on a "black and white street and trail bike" on King Street around 5:45 p.m. but the vehicle didn't comply.

Authorities tracked the vehicle from King Street, west on Dominion Street, and then north on York Street before calling off the pursuit. Police indicated the driver gave an officer the middle finger, and popped at least two wheelies.

Anyone with information concerning the file are asked to contact the Bridgewater Police Service.
