WITNESS: Vehicles Burning Out, Doing Donuts Near Woodside Elementary School in Concord

July 30, 2015 18:00 pm · 60 comments


A concerned local resident sent the following message about two vehicles that were spotted near Woodside Elementary School in Concord on Wednesday.

Yellow Camaro and a Mini with no licence plate street racing and doing donuts outside Woodside Elementary in Concord tonight from 8:30pm until 10:30pm.

Can’t believe how blatantly they did it for three hours! Burnout, park, go hang out on school grounds, burnout, park, repeat … Over and over again. Irresponsible. Hope the parents who brought the brand new car for their little angels are proud!

Concord Police confirm they were dispatched to San Simeon Dr. after three people phoned to complain. They did make contact with the driver of one of the vehicles, who was 19-year-old. It is currently unknown if the driver was cited.

Police say there was no damage to school property.

A 19-yr-old punk.

So you waited until when to call the police? I would call the cops if I saw a ghetto cart (Camaro – didn’t they stop making that POS in 1978) #slowtard

And why did it take 3 hours to get this reported to CPD??

Pamela Schuur July 30, 2015 at 7:09 PM

Quite the laissez faire police response last night. Officers appeared nearly an hour after being called. They missed all the worst behavior because of that. Three or four cars. Dangerous — and loud — driving for hours in this residential neighborhood. Lots of kids in and out of the cars, hanging out late at night on the elementary school campus between drag runs. Ridiculous.

NoMoreFreeRide July 30, 2015 at 7:41 PM

CPD dropped the ball on this one big time! My friend had to drive his truck down and point at the kids in their cars they were just sitting down the block even though they had descriptions of the cars and license plates! FAIL!!!!

City Girl July 30, 2015 at 7:41 PM

Well, a yellow Camaro should be easily identified. Parents??????

Knuckle Head July 30, 2015 at 7:48 PM

Were they filming a Street Outlaw episode. Maybe they were going to teach those Oklahoma boys a lesson.

funny man July 30, 2015 at 7:57 PM

I’M surprised the dispatcher didn’t blow them off and tell them to fill a online report… thank goodness it wasn’t a violent crime, you know the ol saying: when seconds count, the cops are only hours away

Nose Picker July 30, 2015 at 8:04 PM


Dang! Its like the police have nothing else to do whatsoever and they were playing rock, paper, scissor for 1 whole hour to figure out who would respond.

In a city of 125,000 people, you probably were not the only person calling the police around that time and its more probable that the other callers were calling in robberies, domestic violence, stolen cars, fights, car accidents with injuries, etc. etc. which all have a slightly higher priority than 2 idiots doing donuts on & off on a backroad.

Oakland sideshows spilling over to Concord.

Concord is the rest stop and halfway point for Oakland to Antioch ghetto people

@5 July 30, 2015 at 8:16 PM

That’s what young people do, it hasn’t changed since I was young. The complaining hasn’t changed either.

Ozzy Rob white Ford Ranger July 30, 2015 at 8:54 PM

I suggest you call the Crystl Ranch Mob to clean up these streets

THE ANIMAL July 30, 2015 at 8:58 PM

Just some spoiled entitled little punks.In my neighborhood they get a brick through their windshield.

anon July 30, 2015 at 9:15 PM

Maybe someone should slash their tires and teach those idiots a lesson in street justice.

Mk July 30, 2015 at 9:36 PM

So irresponsible …LMAO school isn’t even in session.

Dr. Jellyfinger July 30, 2015 at 10:25 PM

Geez! I was just teaching Barbie how to drive with a clutch. Sorreeeeee.

noticed July 31, 2015 at 6:05 AM

Seems like a bunch of kids living out their “fast and furious” fantasies.

Anon July 31, 2015 at 6:31 AM

So crazy – Concord PD response time sucked for this. Not surprising though, maybe someone should have reported “shots fired” “shots fired”.

Schmee July 31, 2015 at 7:07 AM

Definition of passive agressive. Go talk to them lol

Hubby's off duty Sergeant July 31, 2015 at 7:14 AM

@ Nose Picker. Exactly. If it went on for 3 hrs. be a proactive member of your neighborhood and get your butt out their and tell the little darlings, to knock it off and get out of there. Come on people. Stand up for yourselves! Stop always hiding behind the police to do something and then complain when the officers aren’t there fast enough to deal with your problem. Because, just like you, everyone else is complaining and calling the police about something that they should be able to handle but they don’t. So if everyone is calling in and whining about the small stuff, ( and yes, in this day and age, doing doughnuts is considered the small stuff ) the police can’t be at everyone’s beck and call. Yes it’s frustrating. But deal with it like our parents dealt with it back in the day. Get your butts up off the couch and deal with the little bastards yourself!

Silva July 31, 2015 at 8:15 AM

Uh, Anon (#20), That could’ve also caused more of a delay. 😉

ggg July 31, 2015 at 8:33 AM

Just another example of how bad Concord PD is. Nose Picker must be a dispatcher. When a spinning car runs over another kid and kills her, what excuse will we hear then? Concord PD sends too many officers to some crimes with a big macho display of force, leaving the rest of the city with no police service at all. When someone is trying to break into my house, I don’t want to hear “we don’t have anybody right now” from the dispatcher because all officers are at a knife fight on Monument. Also when the cops do arrive in time to catch someone, they have the option of making an arrest but their first choice is just a reprimand, second choice is a ticket. Prop 47 doesn’t mean you can’t cuff people and book them at the Station.

Random Task July 31, 2015 at 8:36 AM

Police say there was no damage to school property….and there is the rub …their only concern is for the fed/public funded school property …as instructed ..sad I believe in police and them being able to control situations …but obviously they are so thin they cant even deal with these tools they are only allowed to attend to if any damage was done to school…thanks demwits your tactics of dragging down thriving cities and turning them into garbage is working …gratz you have played the demwits game to the fullest now you can proceed to fleece the citizens by instilling unneeded surveys and panels and study groups and programs all designed to filter money back and forth till it gets lost and you then funnel it to private off shore accounts for election campaigns and you over all success while we foot the bill …well done …WELL DONE …..

RD July 31, 2015 at 8:48 AM

To Hubby’s off duty Sergeant ~ Your kidding right? You want people to confront these idiots. Who knows what they might do!!!!!

Pyrrhus July 31, 2015 at 8:50 AM

Not defending them, but don’t you remember what it was like being young with a hot rod? I had friends that were straight A students with some that ended up going to Berkeley and one made it to Yale and they did this type of hot rodding when we were in High School. One friend got caught and was given a hefty fine.

I just find it so funny that Claycordians are so out of touch and think that any little thing that doesn’t fit their perfect little world means the end of the world is happening. It was a bunch of dumb kids and they got caught by police. Hopefully it teaches them a lesson and that’s the end of it.

Nutcreek Frontier July 31, 2015 at 8:59 AM

Great to call the police, but if I listened to donuts for more than 5 minutes, you can be sure, I would be out there having a “discussion” with the little angels…take back your neighborhoods people, don’t live in fear.

Concord Guy July 31, 2015 at 9:09 AM

Was there a rap concert at Concord Pavilion? I know that there are a few coming up. On those nights be prepared for more of this activity from our guests from Oakland.

Reality says... July 31, 2015 at 9:21 AM

Those neighbors waited 3 hours??? That’s being proactive and protecting your neighborhood.

My wife and I we’re taking a walk by Boatwright fields and saw/heard some car spinning donuts in the rear by the soccer fields. I called concord PD and within 3 mins max a CPD unit came hauling a%% down the back road and went towards the back. These guys/kids were such idiots they didn’t even see him pull up. It was funny, cop is sitting there, stopped with his lights going and these people were still spinning! Then he hit the siren and the party was over. My wife and I kept on on our walk, on the way back CPD was there and the car was being towed/impounded. I went to thank the police officer for getting there so fast and we shared a good laugh how they didn’t even see him sitting there watching.

I call EVERY TIME I see people hanging out at the tennis courts on Pine Hollow and Rolling Woods after dark. CPD is always very responsive and I know for a fact they have made two arrest from my calls. Activity there has slowed way down, I encourage all the neighbors in the area to do the same.

If you/we don’t take action to protect our neighborhoods word gets around and undesirables become more commonplace.

Waiting 3 hours is unacceptable by the neighbors and CPD – it takes a partnership.

Fred July 31, 2015 at 10:02 AM

“Not defending them, but don’t you remember what it was like being young with a hot rod?”

You are an idiot- WOW some punk went to Yale – but he can kill people also – you would yell if your kid was dead–love to look at your fat face in the morgue – bad is bad do not excuse it – it gets worse

J. July 31, 2015 at 10:37 AM

The cops were eating donuts while kids were doing donuts.

Savage July 31, 2015 at 10:40 AM

Ah man! I missed the sideshow!! Let a brotha know next time so i can come kick it with yall!

The Mamba July 31, 2015 at 11:02 AM

Teenagers being idiots. Neighbors called the police. Police came and dealt with it. Sounds like everybody did their job.

Mimi (original) July 31, 2015 at 11:09 AM

And the lack of response to this area is why teens hang out on the school grounds after hours!

Publish the Name July 31, 2015 at 11:19 AM

Since this 19 year old did not mind endangering lives, and annoying neighbors for hours on end, publish his name.

Cellophane July 31, 2015 at 11:19 AM

People blame the police when it may be better to look at how these miscreants were parented. Poorly, obviously.

The police are incredibly busy taking calls on priority needs. Some drunken guy beating up on his wife and child is probably more important than some delinquent with negligent parents burning rubber.

Cellophane July 31, 2015 at 12:16 PM

@ 38
Would you please resend that comment? I cannot decipher the gibberish.

Hubby's off duty Sergeant July 31, 2015 at 12:32 PM

@ 38 ?
First off, yes I support our Police dept. And I do believe that we need to take control of some of these situations. @ ggg. I don’t recall anyone saying that there were children around that might get hurt. If that were true, I really would hope that a parent was there watching their child and would stand up to these people and make them stop, take video’s, call 911 immediatley or at least get a license plate #. So your comment about “When someone is trying to break into my house, I don’t want to hear “we don’t have anybody right now” from the dispatcher because all officers are at a knife fight on Monument. ” that means to you that YOUR property is more important then someone’s LIFE. Is that right?

ggg July 31, 2015 at 2:35 PM

Yes, my property matters and it means more to me than a knife fight between gang bangers. They can kill each other off in droves and I wouldn’t care. Why send the whole force to a gang killing when they can’t get a single cooperative witness. Those people are begging for the police to stay away, in my neighborhood we beg for the police to show up. My life matters. The quality of life in my neighborhood matters. Side shows almost always involve teenagers standing around in a circle, too close to out of control cars. In this case there were lots of kids in and out of their cars. Vigilanti self help is exactly what the police tell you not to do. These thugs would pay no attention to a disgruntled neighbor, except to maybe slash his tires or key his car after he went back inside, but hey it’s only property, he should quit his whining.

Nose Picker July 31, 2015 at 4:04 PM

ggg is truly a leading citizen of Claycord. Their property is more important than human life, they wish death upon those judged to be inferior, and advocates for vandalism to others’ property in acts of vengeance.

Nice. I’m sure you’re a big hit with your neighbors.

NoMoreFreeRide July 31, 2015 at 6:53 PM

Fact: The police were given detailed descriptions of the cars, license plates and location. They didn’t show (on a weeknight) to observe the donuts. My friend was so upset he drove down in front of Woodside Elementary passed the kids and their cars and then saw two unmarked police cars just sitting there. He told the cops, “There right there what are you doing?” They then went down after being pushed to do it.

ggg July 31, 2015 at 6:55 PM

Get your insults right, Nose Picker, it is Hubby who advocates vigilantism.

AnonReformed July 31, 2015 at 8:29 PM

You assume the loser isn’t on parole while he puke parents are still in on a life time sentence.

Glock 9 July 31, 2015 at 11:28 PM

If I lived near the school, I would have taken my baseball bat and beat the hell out of both of those spoiled little losers cars!

no knock 9 August 1, 2015 at 8:34 AM

#47 your not in jail yet?you are so full of @#$%#@.for words like that (if true)to beat someone’s car with a bat for burning rubber! tells me you must of been in a claycord article in the past and you were that pos every one was commenting on about a idiot with a bat.Big bad glock9 i’ll just beat these cars with my bat.save it.

canthavefun August 1, 2015 at 9:30 AM

All u people need to chill out omfg they were peeling out doing donuts. People really need to start thinking about what is worth crying about. You know they make these cars for a reason TO HAVE FUN IN THEM. THEY MAKE COMMERCIALS WITH THEM USING THE CARS LIKE THAT THEN WHY CANT WE DO IT AFTER WE BUY A CAR FOR HELLA MONEY. I SUGGEST YOU GET UR SKILLS UP BEFORE DOING EM IN A SMALL NEIGHBORHOOD LOL. NOWADAYS PEOPLE ARE MORE ABOUT BEING SHEEPLE AND NOT LETTING PEOPLE HAVE FUN I THOUGHT THIS WAS AMERICA. Oh wait i forgot we cant even light off fireworks on fourth of july. America is all about screwing over the next person anyway we can so we can make money so our corrupt ass government can spend it on whatever and not tell you. Next time your out having fun watch out someone might call the cops… Theres ways to handle situations maybe if u people actually went out and was like hey can u guys do this somewhere else no u wanna call the cops make dude get fined and maybe possibly his car towed and so then that money goes to CORRUPTION. Its messed up people are so scared nowadays of talking to people theyd rather call the cops

Cowellian August 1, 2015 at 9:48 AM

Try that again, using real words in real sentences. And just so you know, calling people “sheeple” pretty much guarantees that they won’t take you seriously.

But welcome to Claycord.

@ sheeple #49 August 1, 2015 at 9:57 AM

TWO WORDS.. Grow up.

canthavefun August 1, 2015 at 10:01 AM

You people rely on the cops sooo much what are you gonna do when u cant call the cops ? Just a quick question

canthavefun August 1, 2015 at 10:02 AM

We can correct people all day i still think u got my point so keep wasting ur time thinking your better than someone

Cowellian August 1, 2015 at 11:15 AM

Oh, we got your point. Run along, now, the grownups are having a conversation.

‘I remember back in 06 hangin’ out the window like, yeeeeee.. Hyphy on one we might be. One thing that hasn’t changed is teenagers still doing this in cars. Maybe everyone’s so mad because they never even thought about doing this when they were younger or lacked the skills to do so because those look like some small intersections, Or were to scared of the consequences like majority of people. These people were obviously out having fun and didn’t your parents ever teach you to not judge a book by their cover.. # beenhyphy

Wood925 August 2, 2015 at 1:15 AM

I drive the mini

DLS _Spartan August 2, 2015 at 4:56 AM

Get used to it this is just the beginning smoking a intersection in a neighborhood near you coming soon. Cant stop wont stop sideshow city

Sick Of It August 2, 2015 at 7:29 AM


You might be 925 but you’re no WOOD.

Sick Of It August 2, 2015 at 7:37 AM

Hopefully these little punks run into someone that isn’t a homeowner with a family to support, because the only thing stopping a slap down is the law and they most of all should know some people don’t care about the law.


One day they’ll have punks creating chaos on their street if they don’t kill themselves or someone else and become the bottom buck in a prison cell.


Mommy won’t buy them new tires.

Richard Hurtz August 2, 2015 at 12:22 PM

good morning America what are we offended by today

At DLS Spartan August 2, 2015 at 12:25 PM

You had better learn to enjoy public school, because if you come into our neighbors with your wannabee boys in the hoods idiocy, endangering our lives and property, I can assure you your photo and Driver’s license # will be off to De La Salle right quick like.
