A reckless driver in Ontario decided to perform a stunt and blocked a busy highway by spinning a car in tight circles at high speeds.

A video of the rowdy behaviour was tweeted by Ontario Provincial Police and shows the driver performing donuts while other drivers block traffic to film the stunt.

The video was tweeted by spokesman Sgt. Kerry Schmidt along with a caption: 'This is not only dangerous and illegal, it is disappointing when a mob mentality of hijacking a highway to make a scene like this is conducted'.

Police said it is not known when the incident took place. "When you see the video, you see stopped traffic all the way around that curve and if cars are coming up and not realizing that they are coming to a dead stop, very easily we could have a very serious and tragic outcome," UPI quoted Schmidt as saying in CP24.

According to police the unidentified driver in the video could face charges including dangerous driving and mischief.

The incident took place in Ontario's Highway 409, near Toronto Pearson International Airport.
