YouTube prankster jailed

It’s not a good time for YouTubers and their “pranks.”

In a video later pulled offline, RossCreations a.k.a. Charles Ross removes some street signs that he believes are “unnecessary.”

Now Ross has been arrested and in a short video uploaded on his channel, he pleads with his subscribers — more than half a million — to donate to his legal fund since he doesn’t “have much money for legal fees or a lawyer”.

“I recently uploaded a video of myself removing a stop sign at a three way stop,” he says in the crowd-funding page. “The particular intersection had not had a stop sign at it for 18 years of my life.”

Ross then reveals he’s been in jail for two days and charged with a third-degree felony for grand theft.

If convicted, he could face a maximum of five years in prison.

“If you’re not interested in helping me because you think I’m an idiot, that’s fine and I understand! If you are interested in helping me pay for legal defense, it would mean a lot to me!”

After the signs are removed, Ross and his friend are seen LOLing as cars go through the intersection without stopping. Hilarious, isn’t it?
