Atlanta Police Takes Down Dangerous Street Racers in Atlanta, Georgia


March 05, 2021

ATLANTA, GA - FOX5ATLANTA.COM reported that the Atlanta Police is showing its efforts by cracking down on illegal street racing.

The Atlanta Police Department released a new video recorded from their helicopter that shows dangerous drivers meeting in a northwest Atlanta shopping center's parking lot on Feb. 21, 2021, around 2 am.  The Atlanta Police Department's "Phoenix" helicopter monitored vehicles that the law enforcement officers believed to be involved in reckless driving and illegal street racing.  Some of the drivers parked their vehicles, while others sped around the parking lot.

Atlanta police proceeded to observe a suspect as a red Dodge Charger started "laying drags" and began doing donuts in the shopping center's parking lot.  That is when law enforcement officers moved in, and the officers arrested the driver, a 22-year-old man.  The suspect was then booked into the Atlanta City Detention Center.  He faces charges of laying drags and reckless driving. His motor vehicle was impounded by law enforcement.

The Atlanta Police Department released a video of the arrest to send a message and warning to drivers who participate in drag racing or reckless driving.  The Atlanta Police stated that these events often lead to a car spinning out of control and strike pedestrians or other motorists. The police also stated that the department would not tolerate street racing on the streets, and the agency will stop these events and arrest those involved.
