Video shows Bay Area driver doing doughnuts in Camaro before crash πŸ’₯πŸš‘πŸš“πŸš‘πŸš“πŸš‘πŸš“πŸ’₯

The 32-second clip of security footage from the Antioch Police Department opens on a white Camaro swerving and spinning in an empty parking lot as smoke billows from the exhaust pipe.

After a string of doughnuts in the Antioch Marina, the escapade comes to a screeching halt when the drifting vehicle crashes into a light pole, leaving black tire skid marks on the pavement in its wake.

Police were dispatched to the area on Tuesday around 7 a.m. after receiving reports of the incident, said Antioch Police Department spokesperson Darryl Saffold.

β€œIn this business, you kind of see it all, so I wasn’t surprised, but the timing was certainly unusual,” Saffold said, noting that police often receive reports of β€œsimilar sideshow activity” in that parking lot, but usually later in the afternoon or evening.

The driver attempted to flee the scene but was later arrested on a charge of reckless driving, a misdemeanor punishable in the state of California with a fine of up to $1,000 or up to 90 days imprisonment.

A 30-day hold was also placed on the car, which appeared to have a crushed bumper following the collision and was towed away from the scene, according to Saffold.

β€œIt looked inoperable,” he said.

The driver did not sustain any injuries.

Earlier this month, a similar incident occurred when a man driving an Infiniti sports car was arrested after drifting in front of the Salinas Police Department. He was also cited for alleged reckless driving, and his vehicle was impounded.

β€œWe discourage this type of activity,” Saffold said of the incident in Antioch. β€œWhile this wasn’t the type of exhibition where you see a bunch of people standing around, it’s still dangerous just the same.”
