[VIDEO] Corvette Owner Charged After Donuts and Burnout were Captured on Video


Those ubiquitous video cameras continue to get people in trouble.

In this case, 18 seconds of fame is getting a 25-year-old Millersville, Md., in a heap of trouble, as Sheriff Buford T. Justice might put it.

Harry Matthew Huntsman faces six traffic charges after he was caught on video doing doughnuts and other apparently illegal things in the middle of the highway near 94th and Coastal Highway in Ocean City, Md., on May 16.

A 72-year-old man’s dream car turned out to be a nightmare this week.

If you’re going to be involved in a sideshow, you better be prepared to lose your car.

At least in Stockton, Calif., where the owner of this silver C5 Corvette had his or her car impounded after being suspected of taking part in a sideshow there in March.

A sideshow, in case you haven’t heard, is an informal and illegal demonstration of automotive stunts often held in vacant lots and public intersections, most commonly doughnuts.

2003 Corvette Z06 Seized by Greenville Police is the Department's Fastest Police Cruiser

Sheriff Buford T. Justice probably would have had better luck catching The Bandit if he would have had a Corvette Z06 instead of his regular police cruiser.

The Greenville Police Department’s newest cruise is none other than a silver 2003 Corvette Z06. The vehicle was seized as part of a drug investigation. Typically seized cars are sold with a percentage of the proceeds returned to the city, but in this case the police department decided to keep the car. We would have made the same decision.

It’ll be a sad Mother’s Day for one California family after a 40-year-old mom and her 14-month-old daughter were mowed down and killed last Saturday, May 2, by the allegedly drunk driver of a Corvette.

Police say Brian Jones, 35, of Livermore has been arrested on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and driving under the influence causing injury.

It was bad news for both the driver and the passenger in a yellow Corvette that crashed in east Tulsa, Oklahoma early Wednesday morning.

The driver suffered a broken leg and had to be taken to the hospital, but the passenger (who actually owned the Corvette) had it even worse – he was arrested on outstanding warrants.

The best news is that no one was injured Sunday when a man crashed a stolen red C7 convertible after leading police on a chase that reached speeds of 130 mph.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the Corvette Stingray, which suffered major front end damage after catching fire following the crash.

The three-county crime spree actually started with the suspect behind the wheel of a truck in Kendall County, Texas, but authorities say the man ditched that vehicle and stole the Stingray at gunpoint and started a house fire.

[VIDEO] Sheriff's Undercover Corvette Stingray with PDR Helps Bust Street Racers in Texas

Hey, Corvette drivers, if you want to race, take it to the track.

Don’t endanger the lives of innocent people trying to prove your manhood on public streets.

Eight people apparently didn’t heed that advice in Harris County, Texas on Friday, March 20, as they were arrested for street racing on the same weekend as a major drag racing event in town, the TX2K.

Three Los Angeles police officers who shot and killed a Corvette driver they believed was reaching for a weapon last year won’t face criminal charges following the recent conclusion of an investigation by LA prosecutors.

The shooting of 51-year-old Brian Beaird came on the night of Dec. 13, 2013 after he had led police on a wild high-speed chase through downtown Los Angeles.

The pursuit finally ended when Beaird crashed into another car while going through an intersection. He then climbed out of the Corvette, staggering and heading toward the back of the car where officers believed he was reaching for a weapon.
