State Police say an attempted traffic stop on the New Jersey Turnpike turned into a lengthy pursuit that ended with 15 motorcyclists facing various charges.

The trooper was blocked by a line of motorcyclists, and noticed one rider didn't have a visible license plate.

About 15 motorcyclists then started encircling the bike, blocking the trooper's access.
