Youtube Prankster Charles Ross Arrested For Giving People Wedgies
Authorities say a popular YouTube prankster was arrested Sunday for allegedly giving wedgies to people outside of a movie theater in Florida.
According to Manatee County Sheriff’s office, Charles Ross, 18, was busted on a misdemeanor battery charge in his hometown of Bradenton, Florida after a male victim, 20, told cops that Ross grabbed him “by the back of his pants and pulled them up hard.”
Per the incident report, a deputy witnessed the theater owner ordering Ross and a friend who appeared to be “filming the crime” from the theater.
Police said other people who fell victim to Ross’s schoolyard shenanigans “were too embarrassed to want to pursue charges.”
Following his arrest Ross was booked into the Manatee County Jail on battery charges and was released Monday on a $750 bond.
It is not yet known whether he has retained an attorney.
Ross, who operates the YouTube channel Ross Creations, is known for “annoying” and “harassing” people in public while filming it to post online.
Some of his other pranks include “Ghosting People,” where he follows directly behind people walking in public places, “Kissing Strangers,” and “Handstands Over People,” in which Ross walks on his hands over individuals sun-tanning on the beach.
At the time of this article, Ross Creations had 55,650 subscribers and nearly five million video views.
