Christmas tree set on fireplace throughout wild road takeover outdoors Beverly Heart in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Police responded to a wild street takeover Saturday night outside the Beverly Center that included dangerous stunts and a Christmas tree being set on fire.

It happened just after 10 pm at La Cienega Boulevard and W 3rd Street where approximately 500 people gathered to watch.

Video obtained by Eyewitness News shows a vehicle doing “donuts” in the middle of the street. The footage also shows what appears to be a Christmas tree up in flames.

The Los Angeles Police Department said officers responded “within minutes” and quickly shut the takeover down.

No injuries were reported.

Street takeovers continue to be a growing concern for law enforcement after an innocent woman was killed last month during a takeover in Hyde Park. Police said a driver doing “donuts” hit her while she was walking nearby.
