'Driving Like An Idiot' Video Leads To Teen's Arrest


Police in Florida are grateful to the reckless teen who saved them a lot of investigative work by uploading a video of his wild crime spree to YouTube last week, with the title 'Me Driving Like an Idiot'.

Robert Kelley caused two accidents involving four cars before he was seriously injured and was airlifted to a local hospital, The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported. From his hospital bed, he uploaded a video he took as he weaved his 1994 Honda in and out of traffic, ran a red light and exceeded the speed limit to a booming techno beat before he slammed into the back of a Toyota. Investigators told the News-Journal the video ends as Kelley leaves the scene of the first accident and continues on to crash into three more cars stopped at a red light a few minutes later.

The video has since been removed from YouTube.

Police arrested Kelley Friday, WESH reported, though they initially delayed taking the teen into custody due to the severity of his injuries. He faces two counts of leaving the scene of an accident with injuries, which is a felony, as well as reckless driving and driving without a license, as Kelley has never been issued a driver's license.

      This is Florida, remember. He'll get off on a defense that mommy and daddy didn't teach him right from wrong.

        Wrong state, that was Texas. Here he should have just shot everyone and then claimed he stood his ground.

      wish all the politicians would admit the same thing on camera. Obama, Hillary, Pelosi, stand up and show us the real videos of Benghazi.

        @John Roberson
        The real videos? And what would they be showing that we don't already know? 4 people died? Ummm we already know that. How about the 60 that died under bushes watch at embassies and consulates. Any outrage about that? You lost and you are going to lose again. Move on or be disgruntled the rest of your life.

          bush never claimed they didn't die, and we weren't attacked. bush had no problem IDENTIFYING the killers and going after them. It is the COVER up not that stephens got it in the backside.

          @slackwarerobert, now you sound as smart as this kid. Bush lied plenty. Or don't you remember the "WMD's" that never existed. Or how about the fact that he went after Iraq, when not one of the 9/11 terrorists came from there? I would say Bush had a big problem identifying many things. From the way he acted as president, I was not even sure he could identify which shoe went on the left foot, and which one went on the right. After reading your comments, it is no wonder you think he is a genius.

      Don't worry, his liberal parents will say he is a good boy and good student and should get off free. Then when he don't they will sue someone

        Great grammar there William - oh wait! NOT! But I am not the Grammar Police, just someone who is really sick of trolls like you who turn EVERYTHING they read into a political jab-fest. Liberal parents? Really William, is that the best you can do? With a snooty name like Robert Charles Kelley THE Fourth, I'd be willing to bet his folks may lean towards the elitist far right anyway. Just give it a rest.... jeezuz....

      The kid is 18 years old!!!!!!!!! So how is this mommy and daddy's fault? Try him as an adult take his license away for life and be done with it. This isn't mommys or daddys fault or ANY SCHOOLS FAULT!!!!! Man a lot of you people dont listen to what is said during the video maybe you're parents should be blamed for having you.

      So a video makes people go out and kill ambassadors only. I hope he calls hillery and obama to his trial to testify the video did it, he is not responsible.
