    Very bed news. This young kid put his future in serious jepordy. I feel for the kid. I am glad no one was killed or seriously hurt. It’sad when a kid has the whole world in their hands and are not aware of it. I wonder if anyone has told him that these last few years…? Well either way he is going to have to live with what ever the outcome turns out to be.

  • Heya, Awesome job. i didn’t expect to have this right away. It is a great write-up.
