Here’s some advice about being pulled over… don’t brag about how many people follow you on TikTok because that will not get you out of a speeding ticket.
British publication Daily Mail reports that 18-year-old Damaury Mikula — of Florida — was arrested on Friday after running a red light at a busy intersection, doing a burnout as he did so to intentionally tick off the police officer who was waiting at the red light and then engaging thePasco County Police in a high-speed chase that hit 100mph. This all happened around 10:30 in the morning.
Police eventually caught up with Mikula, who was driving a Dodge Challenger, at his home and proceeded to arrest him. While being read his Miranda rights, the teenager began bragging about his four million TikTok followers and the $450,000 salary he gets from the video-sharing site.
Police, clearly, didn’t care and hauled him off to the Pasco County Jail, where he was booked and charged with reckless driving, racing on a highway and evading police.
He was released on bond. It should be noted that his car was also towed.
