A dozen men in a pack of sports cars were cited for reckless driving

Publish date:

A total of 12 men ranging from their early 20s to 50s received citations for reckless driving in Hennepin County on Saturday evening.

The men were all driving sports cars, which officers estimated to cost at least $2.1 million in total, Minnesota State Patrol Lt. Tiffani Nielson told BringMeTheNews on Sunday.

A black BMW lead the pack, and Lamborghinis, a McLaren, a Ferrari, a Maserati and an Audi were among the group, reported the Star Tribune.

A Minnesota State Patrol officer observed the cars speeding westbound on Interstate 394, clocking one of them at 110 mph, according to Nielson.

He was able to stop seven of the vehicles after they doubled back heading east, issuing the men citations.

Five more of the drivers were later located at a Holiday gas station in Maple Plain, and were also issued citations.

A couple of additional drivers evaded the officers and were not caught, said Nielson.

The citations are misdemeanors, and the men will have to call and schedule their appearances in court, according to Nielson.
