OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Police cited numerous drivers and towed numerous vehicles after a large sideshow that occurred early Sunday morning in Oakland, according to police.

According to police, spectators broke windows of businesses and threw bottles at officers.

Ken Houston, a community activist in Oakland, has suggested the city should create a designated sideshow venue with an organized process for participants. One location he suggests is an empty lot next to the Oakland Coliseum.

Houston believes that if a venue isn’t built, sideshows will only get worse and could become deadly.
