One of the vehicles featured in last week's viral video of cars spinning donuts on I-880 near the Oakland Coliseum has been traced back to a 35-year-old Vallejo man named Erik Delafosse.
But here's the thing: Delafosse says he wasn't driving the car.
He told CBS News that he was at a car meet in San Leandro when a man gave him $7,000 to test drive the vehicle, which he was trying to sell. He believes that the man participated in the traffic-stopping sideshow while he was on that "test drive."
"He was gone for about 30 minutes," Dellafosse told CBS News. "Then he called his friend [who] told us where my car was, we loaded my car in the tow truck, we came home, and then I started getting hella videos about my car doing donuts on the freeway."
Delafosse's vehicle is now painted red. He said he painted it because his car is now "hot," and he can't take it anywhere.
Police have spoken to Delafosse, but have made no arrests and shared no details about their ongoing investigation.
