The Fast and the Furious franchise has nothing on Detroit's brazen Dodge Charger drivers.

A viral video posted Thursday appears to show a Dodge Charger doing doughnuts around a Detroit Police Department car while a crowd cheers on. The video was posted to Twitter on Thursday with the caption "Niggas in Detroit just don't give af," and was liked more than 1,700 times by Friday afternoon.

Earlier this month, a Dodge Charger crashed into Detroit arts venue Trinosophes. In March, a Dodge Charger was clocked driving at least 120 mph on I-75. Also that month, a 9-year-old boy was killed in a collision with a Dodge Charger.
