This driver’s show-off stunt ended in a huge repair bill when he wrecked his car by crashing into a lamp-post.
Footage shows the moment disaster struck in Antioch, California, when tire marks and playful donuts turned into a beat-up front fender on January 11 at 7am.
The driver crashed his white Chevy Camaro before trying to flee the scene, but police arrested him for reckless driving and put a 30-day hold on his car.
Antioch Police Department spokesperson Darryl Saffold said while most sideshows happen in the afternoon or evening, so ‘the timing was certainly unusual’ this time as it was so early in the morning.

Antioch Police Department joked: ‘While police officers have an affinity for donuts, we can admit not all donuts are created equal’.
It said: ‘Sideshows continue to be a huge issue in the greater Bay Area and law enforcement remains committed to using the full extent of the law to stop people involved in such activity.
‘In addition to having your vehicle towed, any driver participating in a sideshow can have their driver’s license suspended up to six months and be subject to arrest.
‘Sideshows are extremely dangerous and affect every driver on the road.
‘We all share the road together and have an obligation to each other to drive responsibly.’
The force added: ‘Make better donut selections please, perhaps something with sprinkles.’
