CHP video shows crowd surrounding and breaking into Amazon semi truck’s trailer

Published:

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) shared alarming video of a semi truck caught up in a sideshow in the Sacramento area.

The video was shared by CHP – Valley Division Air Operations on July 8.

The aerial video shows an Amazon semi truck as it is surrounded by participants in a sideshow in Sacramento.

From CHP:

Numerous sideshows throughout the Sacramento area led to multiple arrests. Air 21 assisted ground units from CHP, Sacramento PD and Elk Grove PD, as hundreds of vehicles and spectators congregated to perform sideshows, commit acts of vandalism and impede the flow of traffic. At one point, an Amazon driver found themselves surrounded as people climbed on the semi-truck, threw objects and ultimately broke into the cargo container. The driver was able to escape the area unharmed and limit the cargo thefts.

CHP continued:

“Air 21 assisted ground units from CHP, Sacramento PD and Elk Grove PD, as hundreds of vehicles and spectators gathered to perform sideshows, commit acts of vandalism and impede traffic. In this video, participants can be seen hanging from from vehicles, shooting fireworks and climbing on a tanker-truck. These sideshows ultimately led to two pursuits, multiple arrests, 14 vehicles being impounded and 25 citations.”
