“Those vehicles will be held until their court cases have been settled with the district attorney’s office. They won’t be released anytime soon unless the DA has settled your case,” Withrow said. “No need to keep calling. Your vehicles will stay with us. Therefore they can’t be used in anymore public nuisance or sideshows.”
He added that vehicles deemed to be a public nuisance face the possibility of being destroyed.
