Recent Sideshow Results in the Impounding of a Corvette

In a recent enforcement of “sideshow” activity in the California Bay area, Stockton police impounded a Corvette culprit. The Corvette in question had previously been spotted by police in March in a parking lot taking part in a sideshow by performing erratic driving and doing doughnuts. Upon police attempting to pull the driver over, he failed to pull over and led police on a high speed chase reaching speeds over 100 mph on Interstate 5.

As public safety takes precedence, the officers reluctantly gave up the chase. Investigators later located the Chevy Corvette in the 500 block of Curran Avenue, in Sacramento where traffic officers were able to take possession of the vehicle.

With the tale tail sign of circle pattern skid marks and burnt rubber markings left in many local Stockton business parking lots, several incidents have been reported to authorities. A zero tolerance policy is now in place, and officers have been actively looking for cars identified in recent Stockton sideshows in both the city of Stockton and the surrounding areas including Modesto and Sacramento.

Authorities mentioned that if officers are able to identify a vehicle involved in sideshow activity, they will not hesitate to impound it. With drivers facing appropriate charges, vehicles can be held for up to 45 days incurring thousands of dollars in fines. Sideshows are dangerous for not only the driver but potential passengers and onlookers as well. Investigators are warning the public that even non-Stockton residents will be pursued by the police department if involvement is suspected.
