It seems a new bridge has opened in the Los Angeles area, and much like a new proctologist’s office, it quickly started attracting assholes. Specifically:
The 6th Street Bridge is a downtown Los Angeles viaduct that connects the Arts District and Boyle Heights. It’s been open less than two weeks and has been plagued by “street takeovers,” vandalism, drag racing, and criminal activity. The police have been forced to shut the bridge down twice, including Saturday evening as mobs threatened to get out of control.

As for the assholes, maybe Napoleon had a point, and a “whiff of grapeshot” is in order here.
