Illegal Sideshow spectators attack Highway Patrol car



    FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) - UPDATE: We have new dashcam video from the California Highway Patrol of Sunday's incident.

    Illegal sideshow spectators attacked a California Highway patrol car on Orange Ave and North Ave in Southeast Fresno.

    Officials tell us the officer was in the area, on a different call, when he saw around forty racers, some doing donuts in the street.

    Police say the officer drove up, approaching the drivers doing donuts, when his car was bombarded.

    Some racers approached the car, kicking, punching, and shouting, as the officer struggled to drive away.

    The patrol car has shattered windows, and dented doors, but officials say the officer isn't injured.

    Fresno Police Department is investigating the attack, looking at bystander video, and talking to witnesses.

    A similar call when out to racers on Kings Canyon and Peach.

    We don't have any information on whether or not these two incidents are related.
