Mustang Driver Arrested After Doing Donuts On Bay Bridge

A thrill seeking driver decided to show off the ability of his black mustang over the weekend on a bridge and could have gotten away with it when he was done, but someone snitched....

About 3:30 p.m. Sunday, two Ford Mustangs, one white and one black, and a Chevy Camaro blocked traffic on the westbound side of the Bay Bridge west of Yerba Buena Island, California, before the black Mustang drove ahead and then began doing “doughnuts” on the middle of the highway.

While the was pulling off his side show, a witness was recording the illegal driving on his phone and posted it on Instagram, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

Another driver (the snitch), unable to pass the cars, called 911 and reported the blockade, CHP Officer Williams said. When the three sports cars stopped the “sideshow” and allowed traffic to flow, the reporting witness (the same clever snitch) got behind the two Mustangs when they tried to blend back into traffic and relayed their positions to waiting CHP officers at the end of the bay bridge.

Though authorities didn’t find the Camaro, they did spot the two Mustangs.

“Actually we stopped them right in front of the CHP office,” Williams said, chuckling

The driver of the white Mustang was cited for speeding but the driver of the black Mustang seen on video doing “doughnuts” was arrested on suspicion of reckless driving and street racing, car was  impounded, he said.

San Francisco Area Commander Christopher Sherry provided the following statement:

“A recklessly driven vehicle is a deadly weapon. If one chooses to drive recklessly, they could be jailed, be fatally injured, or take someone’s life; perhaps the life of someone they love. The majority of the motoring public does not think this type of behavior, specifically shutting down freeways and bridges is acceptable.”
