On Thursday, June 25th, two people were arrested and accused of illegally street racing in the 9800 block of Indiana Avenue in Lubbock.

KAMC News reports that a Lubbock Police officer was behind a white Tesla and a Dodge Challenger at a stoplight at the intersection of 108th Street and Indiana.

When the light turned green, the two cars accelerated at a high rate of speed in what was described as an attempt to out accelerate each other.

The Tesla applied its brakes and the officer conducted a traffic stop. The driver, Steven Slay, claimed he wasn't trying to race the driver of the Challenger.

Another officer pulled over the Challenger and both drivers were arrested, with their cars being towed to Lubbock Wrecker.
