Los Angeles police responded to an overnight takeover of the streets near Beverly Center


Los Angeles police responded to an intersection near the Beverly Center on Saturday night as a crowd gathered to watch a sports car do a “doughnut” around a burning Christmas tree.

A crowd gathered at La Cienega Boulevard and West 3rd Street around 10 p.m., but dispersed by the time police arrived, LAPD Officer Norma Eisenman said.

A published video A tweet showed a sports car driving around a Christmas tree.

No injuries were reported and no arrests were made, Eisenman said. Officers initially responded to a report that someone had been shot in the area, but police eventually determined that no one was injured, he said.

Since the start of the Covid-19 outbreak and the roads in Southern California have become empty, shopping, also known as “elections”, has increased. Groups of onlookers block intersections to watch the drivers – sometimes the cars scatter as they pass the crowd.

In the first six months of 2022, the LAPD reported 705 burglaries, compared to 500 in the same period last year. Viewers often post videos of groups, screaming and exhaustion on social media.

Last month, the LAPD announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the driver who killed a 24-year-old woman during an illegal street grab on Christmas Day.

Police said Eliza Guajaca was with a group of about 100 people watching the takeover of Florence Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard in Hyde Park at 9 a.m. While the three drivers were performing illegal stunts, the driver of a black Chevy Camaro lost control and crashed into a group of people standing on a corner.
