Portland police arrest 2 in street racing crackdown

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Portland police have arrested two men as part of its ongoing crackdown on street racing.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports police said 19-year-old Daniel Lopez was arrested on suspicion of reckless driving and reckless endangering.

Police say 29-year-old Weston Obrien was taken into custody on felony warrants.

Lopez was released from custody on his own recognizance Monday. Obrien remains in the Multnomah County Detention Center.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reported extensively in 2018 on Portland’s street-racing scene. The events sometimes draw as many as 1,000 spectators, and race participants have been known to block freeways and urban arterials like Marine Drive.
