Cops nab Brampton driver for ‘doing doughnuts’ in front of officers at Mississauga mall

A driver from Brampton is learning the hard way that cops don’t make for an appreciative stunt-driving audience.
Peel Regional Police said on Tuesday (July 25) that a driver from Brampton was charged with stunt driving following an incident at Westwood Mall in Mississauga.
The mall has become notorious for loud car meet-ups, with police cracking down on drivers using the empty parking lot for dangerous stunting like drifting and doing donuts.
One driver must have been feeling a little too fast and furious as police say the driver was “doing doughnuts” right in front of a PRP officer.
The 21-year-old driver from Brampton was charged with stunting and was hit with a 30-day license suspension. The vehicle was also impounded for 14 days, police said.
Police have been paying extra attention to street racing and stunting in recent months, seizing a number of vehicles and laying numerous charges to date.
A late-February police blitz on the illegal stunt drivers and street racers led to dozens of charges as cops and local politicians teamed up to address the problem.
