Hoon charged over gender reveal stunt in Logan

The driver of a car filmed doing a loud and colourful burnout as part of a gender reveal in Logan last month has been charged over the stunt.

In dash-cam footage obtained by Queensland Police, the red Holden Commodore VP could be seen doing a burnout on Burrinjuck Street in Marsden on September 11.

The vehicle then skidded around onto Timberlee Drive where blue fumes were seen coming from the exhaust.

Police said the stunt “created excessive noise and blue smoke which obstructed the visibility of other motorists on the public roadway”.

Following a public appeal for information, officers this week charged a 29-year-old man from Loganlea with dangerous operation of a vehicle and fail to comply with notice (failed to nominate driver) under the provisions of the PPRA.

He is expected to appear in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court on December 1.
