    Photos of the car afterwards show major damage to the front passenger side, with crumpled bodywork, the front fender hanging off and a wheel wrenched round against the concrete base of the light pole. 

    The police department shared security footage of the crash on Facebook, and joked: ‘While police officers have an affinity for donuts, we can admit not all donuts are created equal.’ 

    On a more serious note it added that sideshows – where drivers gather to perform stunts – ‘continue to be a huge issue in the greater Bay Area and law enforcement remains committed to using the full extent of the law to stop people involved in such activity. 

    ‘In addition to having your vehicle towed, any driver participating in a sideshow can have their driver’s license suspended up to six months and be subject to arrest.

    ‘Sideshows are extremely dangerous and affect every driver on the road. 

    ‘We all share the road together and have an obligation to each other to drive responsibly.’

    Antioch Police Department spokesperson Darryl Saffold said the timing of the incident was ‘ unusual’ as most sideshows happen in the afternoon or evening. 

    The force added: ‘Make better donut selections please, perhaps something with sprinkles.’
