Minneapolis police opened fire hydrants and flooded some downtown Minneapolis streets Sunday night to deter people who were drag racing, according to WCCO-TV.

A Facebook livestream showed a group of vehicles also spinning their tires on Hennepin Avenue, clogging traffic and filling the air with smoke.

The group had come from a car show and school supplies giveaway on Nicollet Island, WCCO reported.

Later Sunday night, KARE-TV tweeted that the drag racing was a protest that began after the Nicollet Island event. The station also reported that no one was injured or arrested.
