There were unusual scenes in downtown Minneapolis Sunday evening, as police flooded some streets in response to a number of drivers drag racing.
Drag racing and burnouts had been an issue earlier in the summer, with several instances of it happening in Uptown.
On Sunday, WCCO reports a group of drivers left an event in the parking lot outside DeLaSalle High School on Nicollet Island and began doing burnouts including on the Hennepin Avenue Bridge, which was blocked to traffic for a short time.
In response, police opened fire hydrants on several streets, flooding them in an attempt to stop the racers.
Pictures taken from downtown show several flooded intersections.
KARE 11 reports that the racers were dispersed by 10 p.m.
