Charles Ross recorded himself removing stop signs for sweet, sweet YouTube views. He found an audience in the local police who pranked him back with a 3rd-degree felony charge.
On his legal fund page (unlinked), he writes:
After posting the video of this, the police found and arrested me for one count of grand theft (a 3rd degree felony). If you're not interested in helping me because you think I'm an idiot, thats fine and I understand! If you are interested in helping me pay for legal defense, it would mean a lot to me!
