Wow dude, that sucks. I'm sorry to hear that. Whats worse is that there will prob be scratches and all kind of crap on your car after you get it back. But you might get lucky. ::crosses fingers::

I was under the assumption that being in a parking lot was private property?

There must be a way to fight that when it is hundreds of miles away..

I mean if it is a parking lot, the stores close by will have vids of who did the donuts..

The fact that you have a new clutch and spin your wheels a little because of that gives no cop the right to impound an OUT OF STATE car..

The out of state thing p-s me off the most.. because what are you suposed to do.. walk back to texas?

I hope you enjoy your stay in Cali. And welcome! Jk dude. That sucks. We have alot of prick cops out here that are trying to crack down on the ricers. Sucks when you are wrongly accused. Best of luck to you tho.

Front wheel drive cars doing donuts, right.... If I were you I'd demand they take rubber samples from both the tires on your car and the marks in the parking lot and then have them analyze them. When the makes of the rubber don't match, case gets tossed. Sucks that happened though, hopefully you'll get your baby back unscaved.
