A judge set no bond for Trevor Hall, finding probable cause that he violated the "no driving" condition of a previous bond

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – The one-time ringleader of an illegal off-road vehicle rally is in trouble again after police said he led them on a chase while riding a dirt bike on Thursday.

Friday afternoon, 25-year-old Trevor Hall was arraigned on new charges of failure to comply and receiving stolen property. Hall also has a “no driving” condition on a bond in a pending case.

“Court has probable cause you’re in violation of these bond conditions. Court is gonna order hold without bond,” said Warren Municipal Court Judge Thomas Gysegem.

Thursday afternoon, deputies said they spotted Hall driving a dirt bike on lawns off of E. Market Street and into oncoming traffic.

“We had a deputy on patrol observe the motorcycle traveling in yards, kicking up dirt and then come out onto the roadway as a dirt bike, not street legal. He initiated the pursuit,” said Chief Deputy Joe Dragovich, Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office.

According to a police report, Hall was waving his middle finger and drove through several red lights.

Deputies took him into custody after finding him in a field behind Everett Industries.

They said the bike he was riding was reported stolen out of Warren.

Hall previously pleaded guilty to similar charges stemming from the 2015 “Bikes Up Guns Down Warren City Ride Out” rally, where about 70 off-road vehicles traveled around the county on public streets.

Police said he organized the ride where the off-road vehicles were spotted driving recklessly.

“I think that when you look at society today, some people just don’t get it and unfortunately for those people, in Trumbull County, they will encounter law enforcement and we will take action to remove them from the street,” Dragovich said.

Hall is due back in Warren Municipal Court within the next 10 days.
