MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Monroe police say the drivers of two vehicles seen drag racing on Spencer Avenue on the afternoon of February 5, 2019, have been ticketed.

According to Monroe police, Daelin Jones, the driver of the black Chevy Camaro, was ticketed for careless operation and driving under suspension. He was also arrested on an outstanding traffic warrant for speeding in a school zone. His driver’s license was seized due to driving under suspension.

Sebastian Loredo, the driver of the white Chevy truck, was also ticketed for careless operation as a result of this investigation.

The video shows two cars, one of them a pickup truck, the other driving in the wrong lane, on either side of Spencer Avenue. The incident took place on an afternoon just before school let out and put neighbors and parents at the nearby Lexington Elementary School on edge.

MPD urges residents to contact police when they see someone driving recklessly.
