YouTuber Arrested for Removing Stop Signs from Roads

A popular YouTuber, who goes by the username RossCreations, has been arrested after a “prank.” Ross describes his channel as “combining comedy, courage, and creativity: Ross can’t help but push the limits as he struggles to find his place in society.” The other day, he removed stop signs from actual roads just for fun. Then he and his friends filmed as cars came flying through intersections.

It doesn’t seem like anyone got hurt, but since people could have been, he was arrested. It’s also very possible that it was a violation of YouTube’s community guidelines. But being arrested didn’t make him put down the camera. In a new video, Ross says he is charged with third-degree felony grand theft and is facing up to five years in prison. In the video, he asked his YouTube fans to chip in and send him money to get him out of prison.
