WESTMINSTER (CBSLA.com) – It was a scene out of “The Fast and the Furious” when hundreds of people came out to watch drivers spin cars outside the Westminster Mall Tuesday night.
Members of “Krispy Kreme Tuesdays Burbank” burnt rubber doughnuts and did other stunts in the parking lot of the mall, which sits just off the 405 Freeway.
“It’s a big old group of car enthusiasts, we all come up here, we all have fun, we’re all out here just trying to have a good time, and you know, just showing off our cars that we put our pride and joy into,” spectator Austin James said.
The event was advertised on Facebook and other social media websites.
Mall security tried to break up the gathering and Westminster police monitored the situation, asking the group to leave. The crowd eventually thinned out at around 11 p.m.
There were no reported injuries. It was unclear if any arrests or citations were issued.
