When the police tried to break up a street race and pulled over one of the involved cars, two men were arrested for allegedly driving under the influence and having drugs in the vehicle.
On the evening of January 27, a Fort Meyers car club was reportedly looking for a spot to hold a race. It was reported that they picked their spot, and a Charger matched with a pickup truck prepared to go head-to-head.
A deputy from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office was parked in a lot close by, and he noticed the activity but did not immediately intervene. When the drivers allegedly went speeding past the deputy at 75 MPH, he noted the Charger did not stay in its designated lane.
