Fairfax County police had a challenging time Saturday night trying to disperse a crowd of 200 to 300 people and vehicles engaged in illegal street racing in the Kingstowne area.
Officers radioed for assistance around 9:15 p.m. when they spotted the vehicles in the parking lot at the Kingstowne Shopping Center.
At one point, participants were reported doing burnouts and were up on a “skid” doing donuts. People were hanging off the cars as they were driven in circles.
Officers trying to disperse the group reported that the crowd was tossing fireworks and flares and they were even throwing items at police.
It took about 20 minutes for the police to disperse the participants.
Minutes after midnight, street racers were at it again, this time on Cinder Bed Road near Backlick Road in the Newington area. They were during burnouts, running red lights, trying to block out their lights and jump in front of police cars.
Police called for less-than-lethal devices such as pepper-ball guns to help disperse the group. It took police about 20 minutes to clear them.
Howard Ludwig, Fairfax County police spokesman, said he was not aware of any arrests or injuries as of 9:45 p.m.
Separately, video posted to social media last night shows drivers performing stunts in a parking lot in Woodbridge.
“Seems like alot of car hooligans out in nova tonight,” wrote the poster.
