Mustang's Donut Aroma Lures Cops, Getaway and Bottle Throwing Ensues

We all love donuts as much as the next guy or gal, but you all know the old saying that there’s a time and place for everything – and when it comes to donuts of the smoking tire type, the middle of a public intersection isn’t the right place, now is it…

Welcome to another episode of cops versus tire-burners, with this incident filmed in East Oakland. If there’s one thing worse than blocking a road to fling your car around, it’s repeatedly trying to escape from the cops, and this guy in the fourth generation Ford Mustang Convertible did both and then some more.

Once the police patrol cars blinked their lights and sirens on him making their presence known, he tried to run away but was cornered. He then crashed into one of the cars and wouldn’t come out even when officers on foot surrounded his vehicle. To make matters worse, the crowd started throwing bottles at the cops.

Enjoy the foolishness in the video after the jump.
