SAN JOSE — San Jose police responded Saturday night to parallel activity that resulted in seven arrests on various weapons charges, five cars seized and hundreds of citations issued, authorities said.
A San Jose police tweet provided some of the details of the activity. Around 11 p.m., more than 200 vehicles took over the intersection of South 10th Street and Alma Avenue near Excite Ballpark for a sideshow before a coordinated response from San Jose police shut it down.
The Twitter feed included a photo from the scene showing the vehicles and police gathered. In addition to the seven arrests, two firearms were recovered and five participating vehicles were impounded for 30 days. Police said around 500 citations were issued for various violations, including being a spectator of the show.
“We will continue to respond to this activity with available resources,” police said, noting that San Jose is the tenth largest city in the United States to be policed by the smallest force for a city its size.
