Metro Police say Whitman was among a large group operating motorcycles, ATVs, and other vehicles downtown on Saturday. Quintin Whitman was observed by officers doing wheelies and weaving in and out of traffic, without any regard to safety, according to an arrest report.  Whitman struck a police van while driving in the wrong direction on Broadway, in an effort to evade police.
