Minto man charged after being filmed while doing a burnout

Two men have been charged after one of them filmed the other doing a burnout.

The driver of a modified bronze Nissan 200sx sedan allegedly conducted a burnout, where the driver maintained a sustained loss of traction and performed numerous drifting manoeuvres, at 9am on Saturday (July 25) on Cattai Ridge Road, Glenorie.

After a video was posted on social media, Strike Force Puma officers commenced an investigation.

Police officers spoke to the driver, a 20-year-old man, at a Minto home on Tuesday, July 28.

The man was issued a court attendance notice for committing a burnout and will appear at Parramatta Local Court on Wednesday, September 9.

His driver's licence was also suspended and confiscated.

Officers then identified the owner/publisher of the social media page, a 33-year-old man, who was charged with urging people to view the burnout by filming it.

He was issued a court attendance notice to attend Parramatta local Court on Wednesday, September 23.

Strike Force Puma was formed in 2018 to target drivers with a history of licence offences, or motorists with a repeated history of drink and drug driving and drivers with extreme or erratic behaviours.
