Two Men Arrested In Irvine For Alleged Street Racing

(Saw this in the OCRegister Website)

IRVINE – Two men were arrested Friday night after setting out on what appeared to be a street race through a lightly travelled business complex, police said. Anaheim resident Rany Shawkat, 20, and Whittier resident Jesse Delamora, 25, were taken into custody after Irvine police spotted the drivers’ cars lined up near the intersection of Deere Avenue and Aston Street. Several other high-performance cars were also at the scene, police said. Shawkat and Delamora were booked for engaging in an unsanctioned speed contest. Irvine officers impounded the drivers’ dual 2006 Mitsubishi Lancers and cited one other driver for his involvement in the would-be race. Illegal racing hasn’t been a problem in Irvine in the past several months, Irvine Lt. Rick Handfield said, but it is common in Southern California. “In our region, it’s been a concern,” he said. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact the Irvine Police Department at 949-724-7000.

soooo....they were just sitting there? Reminds me of when my buddys were racing on a back road int here stangs and they were lined up and here comes a cop. he pulls up and gets out behind them comes up and asks what they are doing,

"Just talking officer." My friend says

And now for the best line from a police offier (other than the one from the cinci cop we got when a guy got tazed in front of our house "Thanks for standin there with ur ****s in ur hands" but anyways)

The officer looks at my friend and says:

"Two mustangs....sitting side by the middle of no where....just talking huh?"


The cop then left and they ran it was just a great quote.

oh gosh, reminds me of when i took on a supercharged 5.0L stang, i knew he'd have my ass, but he was surprised i managed to barely keep up........then the BIKE cops knocked on his passenger side window(while we were sitting @ the next light).....LMFAO!

i wont forget the words the cop said over the rumble of his blown V8:

"Dont let me catch you guys racing again, or else i'm gonna have to write you up"

and then they left!

we looked @ each other, smiled, shared a laugh, and went our separate ways

**NOTE** He was in the process of tuning his ride
