Man Arrested for Stealing Part of Paul Walker’s Crashed Porsche
Many people would do just about anything to get something that was once owned by a celebrity, but what this man — and we use the term "man" loosely — did is beyond imagination. Eighteen-year-old Jameson Witty took it upon himself to to own a piece of the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT involved in Paul Walker’s fatal accident.
Wanting to own a piece of the car that a celebrity was killed in is creepy enough, but Witty went a step beyond creepy and entered the complete douchebag realm in the way that he went about procuring this morbid memorabilia. According to the reports, Witty and an accomplice followed the tow truck that scooped up the Porsche’s remains and stole the Carrera’s roof panel (pictured above) while the truck was stopped at a red light. That, folks, is not only stealing, but it is also interfering with a police investigation and tampering with evidence.
According to police officials: "A witness saw a male exit a vehicle that was following the tow truck. The male grabbed a piece of the wrecked Porsche off the tow truck bed.’
Witty was arrested at his residence in California were the police found the red roof panel. Witty’s accomplice has already been identified, and he is currently arranging to surrender to police.
Both of them risk being charged with felony grand theft. We think it is safe to assume that the courts will give them probation, given the fact that they will receive plenty of punishment in the public sector. The comments on Jameson Witty’s iPhoneogram account show just how people feel about his stealing this piece of evidence.
