I'd run across some of this guy's videos before. Car burned to the ground while he was doing some test runs on a county road after getting the engine replaced by a dealer. Now he's in jail!
Street Racer Arrested
Story I heard is that the dealer claimed the modifications he did to the car were responsible for the fire, he posted videos ripping on the dealership, and they got a cease and desist to try and get him to take them down.
The video of his car burning might have gotten taken down off youtube, I was watching it again the other night but now can't find it.

This topic is gonna go south QUICK so I doubt this subject will last long.

I saw the initial video before all this current stuff, he blew the original engine in the Hellcat doing donuts in a snowy parking lot. Out of pocket, he took the car back to dealer to have engine replaced.

He got the car back, wasn't running right, he thought computer had to relearn, so he kept going. He smelled gas, then a short time later BBQ Hellcat.

From what I saw, placed the blame for the fire directly on the dealership. And strangely enough, right after this, the police start investigating him.

Hmmmmm........

Right or wrong, the whole thing stinks of corruption.

People around here are saying the dealership might have reported all the videos he'd posted of him speeding and such to the police after he posted his videos against them blaming them for the fire.
I've heard he's being held on $400,000 bail. Merry Xmas! Santa4

I saw them too. From initial delivery there was something wrong with that car. I wouldn't have accepted it. After the engine repair / replacement it seemed even worse, again, I wouldn't have accepted it.

My impression was he isn't too bright. 2¢

Hundreds if not thousands of hot rods on you tube breaking the law and they go after this guy?


Hmmmm...... All the marked patrol cars sitting, watching some shows end as people do there ritual burnouts, happens at cars and coffee events too and at time never a ticket issued.

Some cops care, some like..... Ahhh the equal justice for all is such a wonderful thing in our society.

As much as Id like to see all sex offenders hung by a rope, I dont see how it was so important to include that in a subject/arrest of a street racing related issue either.

What a load of BS.

EDIT, I was also but forgot to mention, dont that one site show alot of these cars lives ended early because they burnt up? Ford Pinto 2.0!

His video of the fire included flashbacks to scenes of better times in his Hellcat, doing runs back and forth on a road where there was a 45mph speed limit signs with an inset of his speed showing 110-115 mph on his runs. Scenes of him from inside his car speeding away from intersections after the light changed with his young daughter in the car, and another with 2 adolescent aged boys, and another of him stuck in the snow in front of his house spinning his tires like a fool not making any headway getting unstuck. Then finished with a walkaround of his car in the impound yard burned to a crisp.
In all fairness, the scenes with his daughter and with the boys, there was no speed shown, it didn't look like he was driving especially dangerously or recklessly. The kids were all smiling ear to ear in the videos and although he was accelerating faster than the rest of the traffic, it didn't look like he even had it floored.

He made a poor decision in filming all the hyjinx for youtube crowd. Think he's out of jail now, but those were some silly videos. One of the many videos showed him and his buddy flat towing a truck on public roads at night, with strap or chain, and I KNOW that is frowned upon near this big area. If that really is a hellcat challenger, it can't be a good idea to throw the kids in car for a fun quick ride, being filmed and all. There is a gofundme account I heard too.

I understand but look at the utube channels that cover mainly cover street racing, cash days. 1320 vid is the channel and they are ride alongs in the mix and they go untouched.

Hey, lets next go after the people who watch the illegal activity on the web as they are guilty by proxy. With the wrong kind of porn they go after the maker and watcher.

I cant wait for AI to start ajducating every citizen equally, hell lets just stop the production of anything over 100 hp.

I do agree some is silly but selective enforcement of any law justs bits my butt.

Fraud sounds worse than speeding, unless you are an egregious idiot, which this guy was, so he gets the cherry on his sundae. The cops have Better things to do than troll Youboob videos

I wonder what evidence on the video that makes it a beyond reasonable doubt case that he broke any laws, that it was him, that we know the time date, and place for jurisdiction, that video is not doctored, etc, all the typical Perry mason get out of jail type stuff. Obviously I have not seen the video.

What bearing does the sexual offense have here other then sensational?

Somebody has an axe to grind.

Did LE confiscate the burnt hulk of a car?

In Florida they legally could, before conviction.

I have seen this guy's videos before. He blew up his Hellcat a while back and started a GoFundMe account to get his viewers to pay for his new engine.

There are some youtube personalities that I do like, but every time I see this guy I cringe. Beautiful house, new truck, new ford focus rs, new hellcat and so on and you still want someone else to pay for your idiocy.

That and I hate it when I watch exhaust videos from the " car guys" and almost every one of them heads down to the local Midas to video someone else wrenching on their car.

If I remember right, the dealer replaced his engine that was modified and should have voided the warranty... then he wanted to blame them for it burning to the ground.

Saw a vid he made of him trying to pick up a couple high school girls. That was pretty creepy, especially when you consider the other guy busted with him is a registered sex offender that likes high school girls.........
