France: Mob of 50 'Youths' Wreak Havoc After Motorcycle Rider Arrested for Dangerous Driving

A huge group of 'young people' rioted in France after a teen was arrested for reckless motorcycle riding this week, according to reports.

Chaos unfolded on Thursday night in Romans-sur-Isère, a commune in the department of Drôme.

A 17-year-old suspect was apprehended at around 8 p.m. after he was caught driving a motocross bike dangerously in the district of Monnaie.

Officers came under attack during the arrest, with projectiles launched at them by a group of youths who were quickly dispersed.

"But later in the evening, around 11 p.m., the neighborhood caught fire," France Bleu reports. "About fifty hooded or masked individuals attack the building of Indexia (ex-SFAM)."

"They smashed windows with rocks and stole a company vehicle. They also burned two cars and a dozen garbage cans in the neighborhood."

Police were targeted by approximately 30 explosive devices during the siege but no officers were injured.

Calm was eventually restored after hours of turmoil.

The family of the young suspect has denounced authorities, claiming he was treated too roughly during the arrest.

The riot comes amid a heated debate over violent crime and lawlessness tied to mass migration in France.

Military leaders fired off multiple incendiary letters last year, warning the Macron government of looming "civil war" if strong measures are not taken to regain control of a society spiraling into chaos.
