Leeds, UK (NBC) -

British police said a gang of bikers brought traffic to a standstill in central Leeds Monday night. In footage taken by a bystander, bikers can be seen riding on the pavement and speeding away from approaching police vans.

A statement posted on West Yorkshire police's website said a "large group of people on motorbikes and quad bikes" rode around Leeds city center before congregating on a street.

The statement also said the police received a large number of calls from the public reporting anti-social behavior and dangerous driving. The police believe the gathering was organized through social media, and have arrested one man in connection with the incident. Other witnesses posted on social media that it was like a scene out of the apocalyptic film "Mad Max."
