This time they picked the wrong guy to prank.
The guys behind the YouTube sensation “Miami Zombie Attack Prank!” found themselves getting attacked after an ill-advised attempt to punk a Boca Raton man went awry and the victim went ballistic on the two filmmakers.
And if getting chased and nearly beaten wasn’t enough for their troubles, one of the pranksters was jailed Friday for 20 hours and now faces a felony bomb hoax charge. On Monday night, Boca Raton Police caught up to his colleague, who now faces the same charges.
Jonathan Vanegas, 20, of Delray Beach, spent Friday night in the Palm Beach County Jail. He spoke of the incident Monday, saying that he and his filmmaking partner, Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, also of Delray Beach, did not intend for their antics to incite a violent reaction or result in getting arrested.
While Vanegas was willing to meet with a reporter to talk about the incident, Zdorovetskiy was wary of showing his face in public because of fears that he would be arrested. An arrest report outlining Friday’s incident says that probable cause exists for his arrest on bomb hoax charges.
But Zdorovetskiy said Monday he doesn’t regret the prank.
“I’m just sad the person got that upset,” said Zdorovetskiy, who landed in jail Monday night.
Zdorovetskiy seemed surprised that the video prank had resulted in law enforcement intervention. “The bomb squad came. Can you believe that?” Zdorovetskiy said. “The bomb squad came for this prank. It’s unbelievable how law is these days.”
Zdorovetskiy, the lead filmmaker behind the VitalyzdTV YouTube channel, said he apologized to Brown. Brown, however, didn’t want to hear it, Zdorovetskiy said.
THIS DUMB ARSE HAS NO IDEA HOW CLOSE HE CAME TO WEARING A CAN OF WHOOP-AZZ WITH HIS STUPID ANTICS!!
