A popular YouTuber is soliciting financial help for legal fees after he was arrested for removing stop signs and filming the incredibly dumb endeavor. Rosscreations has over half a million subscribers, and regularly broadcasts his pranks** to the world. It just so happens that when said pranks involve impersonating a city employee and removing stop signs at an intersection, you’ll likely have to deal with a criminal trial.
Now, faced with a charge of third degree felony grand theft and the possibility of five-years in jail, Rosscreations is asking for the internet’s money. Nowhere in the pitch for a legal defense fund is there a trace of apology, as the YouTuber says: “I put the stop signs next to where I took em’ down from, and so I’m charged with a third degree felony, grand theft and so I went to jail for about two days...I don’t have much money for legal fees or a lawyer so your help would be very meaningful to me.” He then goes on to thank some of the more generous benefactors, both of whom contributed $500 and $100.
