A Krispy Kreme drive-thru was shut down by police Tuesday after a doughnut giveaway for new graduates caused a traffic jam in Long Beach.

Officers noticed a three-block line for the drive-thru of the Krispy Kreme while responding to a traffic dispute near the doughnut shop at 4760 Los Coyotes Diagonal about 11:50 a.m., according to Officer Jennifer De Prez of the Long Beach Police Department.

The line was impacting traffic in the area, leading officers to close the drive-thru, De Prez said. Customers were still allowed to make orders online and walk up to the business.

Krispy Kreme was giving free doughnuts to seniors who could prove they graduated by wearing a cap and gown with 2020 tassel or other Class of 2020 apparel.
