BURBANK (CBSLA.com) — Police were expected to be out in force Tuesday in Burbank following reports on social media of a “flash mob”-style gathering of car enthusiasts.

An announcement on the Krispy Kreme Tuesdays Burbank Facebook page indicated that a gathering is planned Tuesday, but the “location will be announced at 8 p.m. to avoid unwanted attention.”

The event could take place anywhere “from 30 – 60 min from Burbank or maybe it will be in Burbank”, according to the announcement.

Similar gatherings in recent years have drawn hundreds of people to the Burbank Empire Center for the so-called “Krispy Kreme Tuesdays” events, including a 2013 gathering that saw around 3,500 people and over a thousand vehicles overwhelm the Center’s parking lots and cause traffic headaches for surrounding neighborhoods.

Although there were no arrests, officers issued about 100 citations for vehicle code violations.

Another rumored gathering in June saw police go on heightened alert and forced the Krispy Kreme store – which is not affiliated with the event – to close early. In a last minute change, the event was moved to the Puente Hills Mall in Industry and drew about 1,500 people.

No injuries were reported, but there were three arrests and 48 citations were issued, according to the sheriff’s department.
