San Jose Police Breaks Sideshow; 7 arrested, hundreds quoted

SAN JOSE — Police in San Jose responded late Saturday night to a sideline activity that resulted in seven arrests on various gun possession charges, five impounded cars and hundreds of fines, authorities said.

A tweet from the San Jose Police Department provided some details of the activity. At about 11 p.m., more than 200 vehicles took over the intersection of South 10th Street and Alma Avenue near Excite Ballpark for an afterthought before a coordinated response from the San Jose Police Department halted it.
