Florida YouTube Prankster Arrested For Giving Wedgies to Strangers
People apparently love watching idiots annoy random strangers on You Tube, sure, but it turns out that people don't actually love being annoyed and assaulted by random strangers for YouTube videos.
Charles Ross, 18, has a popular You Tube channel that has racked up close to five million hits in which he pulls off random stunts around Bradenton, Florida. He's kissed strangers, walked on his hands over people at the beach, and "ghosted" pedestrians.
His latest stunt however wound up with him behind bars.
Ross, clearly one of the great comic geniuses of our time, apparently remembered back to when he was in fifth grade and the idea of giving someone a wedgie was hilarious.
So, he set out to give random strangers wedgies.
What could go wrong with that?
Ross and his friend Jordan Owens went to a local movie theater. Ross then gave wedgies to several people while Owens filmed the stunt.
One victim however was not pleased. According to the police report obtained by The Smoking Gun, Ross grabbed the man's pants and "pulled them hard" which caused "discomfort."
Ross than challenged the man to hit him.
Instead, he contacted police.
The officer charged Ross with misdemeanor battery, and confiscated his video camera as evidence.
In case you're wondering, here's a compilations of Ross's "pranks." The only cool one being when he does a running backflip off a tree in tighty whities, because running back flips are never not cool. How about less wedgies, Charlie, and more running back flips?
