A release issued by Walnut Creek police following the raucous takeover of a downtown intersection early Saturday morning detailed the police response to the incident – which they say included the issuance of citations and the impoundment of one car in which officers allegedly found an unlicensed male juvenile at the wheel, his mother riding as a passenger.
Police said responding officers made several traffic stops on the “large group” (which they put at approximately 50 people and 25 cars at the intersection of Locust Street and Olympic Boulevard) at around 1 a.m. Saturday – with officers making the impound already mentioned as well as citing another vehicle for having a modified exhaust.
Video of the incident was included with a post detailing the incident on this site Saturday morning. Although the group fired off fireworks during the time they were in control of the intersection police said their officers deployed the smoke canisters initially thought to have been used by the group to obscure their movements.
Police stressed that there were no injuries or traffic collisions reported from the sideshow and said that followup investigation had identified another involved driver – an investigation that led to that driver’s vehicle being impounded, as well.
