Bill Moore, a retired police officer, lives a mile from the intersection. He said it was shut down Saturday night while drifters took over, before they moved to a nearby business park.

“It’s no secret that this is an organized event, and it’s being published on Instagram,” he said. “If I can find it, I know law enforcement, investigative personnel can find it.”

Orlando Police Chief Orlando Rolon said the department does operations with neighboring agencies to target that kind of behavior, but sometimes those events just pop up, like the event this weekend did.
