Cell phone video shows the large crowd gathered at an intersection along Highway 127 near the Bethlehem community on Saturday night. Deputies with the Alexander County Sheriff's Office said the intersection was shut down by drivers doing donuts.

After law enforcement busted the gathering, deputies and police pursued several of the drivers, including one instance where a patrol car was hit. After another chase, Taylorsville police arrested a Cornelius man who was in possession of an assault-type rifle and several dealer tags. Officers said they believe folks involved were using the tags so law enforcement couldn't identify them.

Taylorsville police told Channel 9′s Dave Faherty they believe most of the vehicles drove nearly 60 miles from the Charlotte area to the rural county of about 35,000 people.
