Livermore police highlighted the investigative breakthrough in a social media post, saying deputies in L.A. stopped the vehicle in their jurisdiction on Saturday night.

"The registered owner of the car now faces thousands of dollars in tow and storage fees," LPD said. "Sideshows are illegal and will not be tolerated in Livermore. Anyone engaging in sideshows could be cited, arrested and their vehicles impounded."

The case goes back to Oct. 1, when two vehicles were seen participating in a sideshow at the intersection of First and L streets in Livermore around 10 p.m. A Livermore police lieutenant observed a black Lexus sedan spinning donuts while a large crowd gathered around the car, according to the department.

The lieutenant filed for a court order for the car, which fled the scene, to be impounded for 30 days for reckless driving if it was located by law enforcement.
