A Virginia man faces criminal charges and almost two dozen traffic violations after Maryland Transportation Authority police said he did doughnuts on the Bay Bridge on Sunday.
The charges against Gary Ray Montague, Jr., 22, of Dumfries, comes after videos of his stunt on the westbound span of the bridge emerged and were circulated on various social media platforms.
Transportation police launched an investigation after learning about the videos, which showed a small, dark coupe spinning its tires as it drives in circles on multiple lanes. Smoke seems to rise from the asphalt as the tires rotate rapidly.
After consulting with the Queen Anne's County State's Attorney's Office, police said they filed charges against Montague, who they suspect was the driver.
Montague, who does not have an attorney listed in online court records, faces three counts of disturbing the peace and one count of disorderly conduct -- both misdemeanor offenses.
Additionally, he faces 23 traffic violations, including driving the wrong way on a one-way street, willfully disrupting the flow of traffic and reckless driving, among other offenses.
