San Diego police arrest man in connection to alleged “sideshow takeover”

A San Diego man was recently arrested in connection to an alleged “sideshow takeover,” according to police.

On the night of August 13th, police were alerted to a planned “sideshow takeover” of multiple intersections in the city — Camino Ruiz and Carroll Canyon, Lakehurst and Clairemont, Mission Bay and Garnet, University and Normal, and Roselle and Sorrento, as well as the 400 block of Anita Street in Chula Vista, police said.

Police monitored each location and discovered a white 2010 Dodge Charger doing burnouts at Garnet and Mission Bay. A San Diego PD chopper followed the vehicle to the next “takeover” location at University and Normal, where police stopped the vehicle and detained the driver, identified as 18-year-old Mauricio Santos Alvarado.

Alvarado, and a juvenile passenger who was riding with him, reportedly had an open alcohol container in the vehicle, and Alvarado was evaluated at the scene for potentially having driven under the influence. Officers also found a ghost gun in the car, police said.

Alvarado was ultimately arrested and booked on suspicion of child endangerment, possession of a non-serialized or registered and loaded handgun, reckless driving upon a highway, exhibition of speed, and driving as a minor with a blood-alcohol concentration greater than .01%.
