A teenager is the third person to face charges after a viral video surfaced showing a large group of drivers and spectators doing doughnuts and burnouts and blocking traffic on I-285.

Devon Donovan Henry, 19, of Conyers, was arrested Saturday on charges of reckless driving and racing on highways in connection with the incident that shut down the busy interstate one week earlier.

According to Clayton County police, he is the third driver arrested in the case. Authorities had previously identified 20-year-old Zachary Lewis and 21-year-old Isadore Harvey.

Lewis and Harvey were arrested Friday night. Both are facing charges of racing on highways, impeding the flow of traffic, laying drags and reckless driving, Clayton police spokeswoman Lt. Cherie West said.

“These offenders may have thought this stunt was a few minutes of fun on a weekend, but the consequences will last much longer,” West said Sunday in a news release. “We will continue to combat this deviant behavior.”

In the video, several drivers turned the busy tunnel that runs underneath a runway at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport into a parking lot. Scores of onlookers recorded as the drivers did doughnuts and burnouts on the interstate.

Witnesses said cars going about 70 mph were forced to come to an abrupt stop as traffic backed up in front of the tunnel.

“It was definitely organized. They definitely had a system going,” said one woman, who asked not to be identified. “They were hanging out of their cars, driving with their phones, each one of them.”

The crowd had dispersed by the time authorities arrived, some six minutes after the initial 911 call.

During the “drift stunt” incident, police said Lewis was driving a burgundy Dodge Charger with blue lights underneath, while Harvey was driving a black Chevrolet Camaro. Police did not say what Henry was believed to be driving.

“Although the capture of these three offenders is a great accomplishment, the larger investigation is still ongoing and additional details will not be released at this time,” West said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Capt. David Ricks at 770-477-3786.
