SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) — Police in Santa Rosa on Friday arrested five people in connection with a sideshow that was occurring in the parking lot of a business center.

Nicholas Uribe, 23, and Mario Espinosa Jr., both of Santa Rosa, were arrested on suspicion of reckless driving in a parking lot and violation of probation, Mario Hernandez, 31, and Raymond Herrera, 18, both of Santa Rosa, were arrested on suspicion of reckless driving in a parking lot, and Uriel Cordova-Lomei, 27, of Santa Rosa, was arrested on suspicion of reckless driving in a parking lot and felony child endangerment, police said.

Officers with the Santa Rosa Police Department responded Friday night to 1950 Santa Rosa Avenue to reports of recent sideshows that have been occurring over the past several weeks.

Police said hundreds of people and vehicles have been gathering in the parking lots of Costco and Best Buy on Friday nights, and police had been receiving complaints of vehicles driving recklessly, putting the public at risk and disrupting businesses.

On Friday, police set up cameras to capture reckless driving and officers were deployed to the area to assist with traffic stops on vehicles that were driving recklessly.

In addition to the arrests, there were six citations issued, police said.

Police said typical sideshows include vehicles spinning doughnuts, speeding, screeching tires, racing and other various legal activities.

  1. Of course ethnics who cannot contribute to society due to their lack of basic skills engage in these sideshows.
    Time to ship them back to Africa and Mexico and demand that those inferior places pay us a management fee for babysitting their failed abortions.

  2. There should be places where this kind of thing is legal. We had drive-in movie lots, parking lots, airports and other properties to do this 50 years ago, and these kids need the same accommodation. It is ridiculous to give people arrest records for a rite of passage.

    1. Or better yet these failed abortions should get jobs at whatever loser fast food place is hiring.
      This way they can provide for their families by bringing them fatty food and some cash to support their drug habits.
