When are people going to learn that posting videos of themselves on YouTube doing something illegal is impossibly stupid can be used against them in a court of law? Motorcycles carelessly speeding through traffic at triple-digit speeds are one thing, but driving around in the suburbs randomly shooting a handgun out of the window is every bit as asinine.

This is the predicament that Ronnie Michael Wynn of Vancouver, Washington finds himself in after police discovered a video that the 23-year-old posted of himself on YouTube and Facebook. On July 16, Wynn had been arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle, but when police found the video online during the course of their investigation, his problems had only just begun. An article on our sister site Huffington Post reports that Wynn had stolen the .45 handgun – as well as an Airsoft rifle, a watch and some checks – from his uncle. Wynn then had a teenage girl in the passenger seat record him driving around in a Chevrolet Malibu showing off the gun and firing it wildly out the window.

According to reports, Wynn, who calls himself "Ron Gotti," has outstanding warrants and faces charges including possession of a stolen vehicle, second-degree possession of stolen property, hit-and-run, driving on a suspended license and making false statements to police. While incarcerated, Wynn has also been accused of everything from second-degree identity theft and forgery to financial fraud. He is slated to go to trial on September 17.

Scroll down to see the video for yourself (Warning: music in the second video includes explicit language).

      Can we just start executing people like him on the spot? What a waste of human life. To think of all the honorable soldiers who have given their lives, children dying of cancer, all the good people in the world taken from us prematurely.....and this piece of crap lives.

        You really do have to wonder why some people are kept by society. Past a certain point it is a certainty that they will never provide a meaningful existence, will never contribute to society in any meaningful way. Somehow I don't see "making a lot of other people's lives worse and potentially killing them with random shootings" as a protected inalienable right. I'd give this bastard the thumbs down...

      God I hope he hasn't had children.

        No, but he does have three teardrop tattoos. I'm sure they're authentic, too.

      Was hoping he would shoot himself at some point there.

        that's what I thought "cap-busting" in the title meant, capping his own kneecap.

      The first giveaway that this douchebag is, well, a douchebag, is the douchebag flat-billed hat, especially with the sticker left on the bill. Instead of having to be around these fools long enough to realize they're douchebags, these hats just let the entire public know right away: "Yep, he's a douche."

      The saddest thing about this video is the girl idolizing him the whole time throughout it. As long as women continue to give guys who act like this the adoration they seek, history will just keep repeating itself. $20 says the same girl would probably turn down a date with a decent guy with a career and no record.

      Your son is a F***** loser and most likely because of bad parenting.
      • 2 Years Ago
      I swear - If we listen to all these parents / friends - NO ONE is ever a bad person. They always "get mixed up with the wrong people" - WHO THE HELL ARE THE WRONG PEOPLE THEN? YOUR SON IS THE BAD PERSON. This isn't his first offense. 1st offense - mixed up with the wrong people, been there done that. I've never been in trouble again. Period. Never underage drank after that, never once smoked pot, never beat people up, robbed then, did drugs etc. 1 and done - you can say you made a mistake - but your kid IS THE MISTAKE! The kid is remorseful because now he has no freedom. Of course he is going to show remorse to get out sooner - then he will most likely be right back where he was in this video only next time I hope a cop sees and shoots him to save us all a headache.

      Wonder how gangsta he will be in prison? Figure the Aryan nation is out and the brothers will laugh at him... Prison and no mans land. Best wishes, A. Taxpayer

      I was hoping for the gun to off and take out his penis

      Those nice face tattoos make him tough to pick out in a lineup also.
