California police look for ‘idiots’ who shut down busy highway by driving in circles
The California Highway Patrol hopes to locate a group of drivers who briefly shut down the I-880 near Oakland by doing donuts in the middle of the highway.
A YouTube video entitled “Idiots start drifting in the middle of the highway” showed about half a dozen tuned cars driving in circles and peeling out as traffic piled up behind them.
The stunt began at around 4 p.m. on Saturday and lasted for a few minutes. An unidentified man started shouting “Five-O” as police arrived and the cars all sped off.
“It was like something out of a video game,” CHP spokeswoman Diana McDermott said Monday. “It is extremely reckless driving. In no way are our freeway systems designed for this.”
Sgt. Rob Barrera told the Associated Press he was confident the drivers will be caught.
