PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Arizona DPS Highway Patrol Troopers and Phoenix Patrol Officers arrested nearly two dozen people and cited more than 100 for street racing in Phoenix Sunday night.

DPS said there were more than 250 street racers in different spots throughout Phoenix before they raced each other along Valley freeways and city streets.

Police believe the groups may be connected to the recent YouTube videos of cars driving erratically and blocking the Interstate 10.

In all, 65 traffic stops were made on those involved in street racing, DPS said.

A total of 23 people were arrested, and 114 citations were issued.

Those arrested are now facing charges of racing, criminal speed, and reckless driving.
