Footage has emerged of a mob attacking a California Highway Patrol cruiser while the officer was trying to shut down an illegal sideshow at the weekend.
The incident occurred at the intersection of North and Orange Avenues in Southwest Fresno on Sunday afternoon around 3.40pm.
Police say a group of about 40 people blocked traffic by putting on a sideshow that involved reckless driving and cars doing burnouts.
When the officers tried to break it up, the crowd violently turned on them and targeted the vehicle, with one heard shouting: ‘F*** the police, n****. We run the streets, motherf*****.’
