New York Police Arrest YouTuber For Filming Airsoft Video

what looked like a heavily armed gunman
on a Brooklyn rooftop today terrified
neighbors NYPD aviation footage hones in
on a man dressed in all black wearing a
mask and yielding what looks like an
assault rifle this is the story of how
you get arrested by filming an airsoft
video on top of a Senior Center in
Brooklyn the suspect is being questioned
by police and charges are pending
what we didn’t need normally when we
hear about airsoft in the news it’s
never a good thing and well it happened
again this time it’s not because of a
little kid we see reports about kids
getting arrested because they took
airsoft guns in the public to show off
to their friends or because they’re
stupid enough to take him to school like
some Fresno high school or just did with
an Elite Force hater and a lot of times
it ends pretty badly very fast but most
true airsofters know better or at least
they should know better we even tell
people not to take him out in the public
during Halloween because at that time
everyone wants to be ghosts from all
warfare – but that assumption has been
proven wrong me William who’s not
looking too hot in the Brooklyn streets
with cuffs on because the New York
Police Department just busted his ass
and he’s still wearing his cry or LBX
pants the suspect was spotted atop the
Fort Greene Grant Square Center in
Bedford around 10:50 2:00 a.m.
armed with what appeared to be a rifle
according to the police a woman named
billow spotted him outside of her office
window as he was on top of his building
filming an airsoft video she called the
police and her building went on lockdown
the police didn’t shut down the block
surrounded the building set up ging
snipers and probably called it a b-2
bomber just in case if anything else
went wrong you really got you really got
to see the helicopter footage it’s
priceless you could clearly see he’s
recording something and he does have a
rifle of some sort and honestly if you
look at just a screen shot like just
just this screenshot it kind of looks
like some live leek war footage no lie
I’m seeing a lot of people comment that
it’s
merely an airsoft gun just by the
footage from the helicopter I gotta say
I think you’re foolish these kind of
people sound like the same people that
pick up bb’s and can obviously tell what
weight they are just by holding them it
only took about 30 minutes for the New
York Police Department to rush him
arrest him and then of course confiscate
everything airsoft related in his
apartment and boy did he have some good
stuff first of all the rifle they got
busted with was like $2,000 plus the ASG
BLS build looks like he has a hollow
sign up top and a guy’s Li rail it’s a
nice rifle got to shoot one myself
actually a couple months ago and then
the New York Police Department posted
this on their Instagram a table filled
with like three to four thousand dollars
worth of gear by the way don’t you think
it’s like the funny issue whenever they
post pictures of something like this
when they have a whole table just laid
out and they have like a single crack
pipe just all proud of the vassals so we
have pictures and we have the helicopter
footage of William shooting or
pretending to shoot on his camera and
the camera itself got confiscated as
well but the charges that he picked up
are interesting from what I can find
right now William is charged with
reckless endangerment obstruction of
government administration disorderly
conduct menacing and criminal possession
of a weapon my neighbors are arguing
outside the last part of his charges is
kind of interesting criminal possession
of a weapon and the police say that he
was running a YouTube channel that he
frequently posts on which explains the
cameras and GoPros they were all
strapped to him sources tell CBS 2 the
26 year-old suspect has his own YouTube
channel which he frequently posts on and
was apparently trying to record a video
before he was arrested so if he’s
running a YouTube channel that got me
wondering what channel was it so I asked
a few friends and I did a little hunting
well he actually follows me on Instagram
and has subscribed to the u.s. airsoft
channel so I snooped around on this
channel I always like it when people add
some personality into the videos I like
a lot of his shots by the way sorry if
you think that I’m exposing you Chariman
cat of course since this happened people
are pretty half-and-half in the whole
situation so
people are saying that the police should
have minded their own business and
stayed out of it and never even
responded to the call and a lot of
people were saying that this is a breach
of privacy as if filming on a king
building top in the middle of New York
or Brooklyn or wherever entitles you to
privacy especially when you look like
this on camera and of course a lot of
people in airsoft are saying that this
is one of the stupidest things any
airsofter could have done needless to
say people are pretty pissed about the
situation I do love this little
statement if the New York Post added
into their article about the incident
though a creep and all black stocked the
roof of a Brooklyn Senior Center with a
toy gun before he was arrested wait it
was a senior sinner regardless of what
everyone else was saying though what do
I think about the situation and do I
think that this guy deserves any prison
time well first of all this was pretty
stupid I could understand what he was
trying to go for with all the buildings
in the background for his review or a
gameplay video he only has two videos on
his channel so I don’t know exactly what
he would have been doing but this would
only work in a perfect world where no
one’s scared about mass shootings and
stuff like that but I still wouldn’t
have done this or told anybody that
would have been a good idea to do this
you’re just asking for something bad to
happen and this guy is honestly lucky
that it didn’t get any worse than it did
someone panicked when they saw this guy
on top of a building and they call the
police but I don’t think the reaction
that he got was the best course of
action getting a six-star one level
right away is a little extreme I think
that’s just a lot of people for one guy
filming a video on top of an old folks
building and like I said he set up
snipers it’s so situational because
imagine that this guy was some lunatic
and he did have an attack planned people
would be king pissed if the police just
hung up the phone and ignored the phone
call but you got to keep in mind that
because of all the comments I have seen
I’m getting the idea that a lot of
people wanted the police to just ignore
the phone call I think this guy kind of
brought it on himself to be honest
because he put himself out in the open
where anyone could see him and where
anyone could interpret what he was doing
in any way they wanted to and if they
didn’t like him they could just lie and
they probably get away with it too not
saying that that’s what happened but it
wouldn’t be hard to do so but you’re the
one to talk
after all you were filming airsoft
videos behind your
Hartman’s for years yes yes I was for
years and everyone in my apartment
building knew I was doing it the front
office management we’re also all right
with me doing it and we’re actually
liking the content I was putting out I
guess I got lucky I even had two police
officers that lived on the second floor
while I lived on the third floor and
they would come out on their balconies
and watch what I was doing and asked
about the guns that I was actually
reviewing at the time they liked my ghk
AUG the most by the way as long as I
didn’t shoot people’s stuff or make a
mess I was good they kind of helped that
my whole apartment building was
surrounded by woods and to be extra
cautious I would introduce myself to
every single new neighbor just so they
knew what I was doing and if any of them
told me that they didn’t like what I did
then that would have been it I wouldn’t
be able to film there anymore because I
know that I would have caused the
situation but then again I had multiple
different places I could have went to to
go film as well I just filmed there
because it was behind my building it was
literally like a two minute walk but
what I do that now knowing that I live
literally next door to a high school no
because of now where I live I’m gonna
have to go to a field or I’m gonna have
to go to a friend’s house or something
private property where I can go film and
it doesn’t matter who sees me because
I’ll be on private property in a
backyard or out in a huge plot of land
it just won’t matter at that point if we
even boil this down more would I go on
top of a building in downtown San
Antonio to go film an airsoft video with
guns and gear all strapped to me
absolutely not when we were filming the
G&G Banff review I had my friend tell me
that maybe I should go film some b-roll
of the G&G Banff on top of a building he
knows nothing about airsoft he’s not
really that good on anything firearms I
told him that was a terrible idea and
then he thought about it and then he
realized yeah really bad idea because
there’s so many buildings around there
where the same situation would have
occurred my idea is he wanted to film a
video and had nowhere else to film it or
he wanted a really good backdrop with
all the buildings in the background just
so it looked more cinematic key and I’ll
admit that would look pretty good
probably but you got to think that
people can just look out their windows
and like I said take it any
they want to I guess while I’m at it let
me introduce you to a little story that
I haven’t told anybody else in the
airsoft industry nobody about two years
before he created us airsoft I think it
was like 15 or 16 at the time we went to
Leon Valley it’s a small area in San
Antonio that we all just called San
Antonio but one thing you need to know
about Leon Valley you don’t quit the
Leon Valley Police Department but why
does this matter well because on New
Year’s night me and my friends decide to
play airsoft in a public park a
playground at nighttime guns in gira
blazing and it took about 30 minutes for
someone to call the police on us and
they got there pretty fast after they
said that they were calling the police
we were stupid we waited for them and we
kept playing and when the police showed
up they said the coolest thing ever that
I still remember all right one more game
it felt like Christmas so after that I
went Charles Bronson on my friends we
packed up and we left a few years have
gone by I’m 24 now and I would never
have done that knowing what I do now it
was really stupid to me because I could
have got shot I could have got put in
jail I could have been just fine or I
could have a cellmate that likes my ass
a lot of things could happen you can
hunt me down if you want to but I’m just
being real with you about something I
did when I was like 15 or 16 years old
as for this video that’s pretty much it
my message the NYPD and the 77th
precinct about the arrest and I didn’t
get anything back but I’m sure anyone
who wants to know more about this will
see more the story as it develops the
more all the story is just use your
fucking head
keep your guns out of private eye film
at airsoft fields are on private
property we’re not trying to be
dickheads here we’re just trying to make
sure that you’re not getting shot by the
police or that our game doesn’t get
banned by inspiring government officials
they’re trying to use stories like this
to get the game of airsoft and maybe the
game of paintball too while they’re at
it banned from the state or the country
as a whole
paranoia is pretty high in the world
right now so we don’t need any earth
like this in the news now I just wait
and see if I can reach out to chairman
cat or maybe he’ll see this video maybe
we can put together an interview or
something so he can tell me what he
thinking and what happened to him after
he got arrested because we don’t know
what’s going on with him right now but
that’s all I really got to say it’s 4:30
in the morning my girlfriend hailey is
asleep in the other room I have no pants
on I didn’t decide to wear a knee and
scout the doggies channel will be linked
down below in description because the
guys to go but I’ll also leave links to
the Articles that I was reading from but
I guess until next video drops from City
San Antonio this has been Scott
Hollenbeck and I’ll be sure to see you
all next time be safe everyone
