Two members of the Brother Speed Motorcycle Club and one of their passengers allegedly damaged a car traveling on a Eugene-area highway in retaliation for an earlier crash, state police said.
Troopers said a 911 caller reported two motorcycles chasing a Toyota Corolla on Highway 126W on Sunday afternoon. The suspects were reportedly hitting the car with their hands and a metal hook attached to a leather lash.
Soon after, the motorcycle riders, who were wearing Brother Speed Motorcycle Club jackets, and the passenger, were pulled over and arrested.
Troopers said the man and woman in the Corolla reportedly ran another motorcycle rider off the road earlier in the day. That case is under investigation.
Kenneth Cornell, 54, and Phillip Davis, 36, were arrested on suspicion of harassment, menacing, reckless driving and recklessly endangering another person, among other charges.
Amber Johnson, 36, is facing charges of harassment and resisting arrest.
