St. Louis Police Break Up Crowd of Stunt Drivers, Spectators

Apr 27, 2020

Police say they were called to downtown St. Louis this weekend to break up crowd of more than 200 stunt drivers and spectators.

Television station KMOV says officers who arrived at the scene Sunday afternoon on Fourth Street found it packed with cars and people, with drivers doing burnouts in the parking lot near Busch Stadium and speeding down the street.

The crowd violated a state-issued stay-at-home order and ban on gatherings of more than 10 people as part of an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. More than a dozen police vehicles and several officers on bicycles broke up the gathering, and one person was arrested.
