YouTuber Gets Swatted, Cops Find Weed And End Up Busting Him Anyway

Illustration for article titled YouTuber Gets Swatted, Cops Find Weed And End Up Busting Him Anyway

Whiteboy7thst, aka Alexander Wachs, is a YouTuber who streams games. Last month he was the target of a "Swatting" when it was falsely reported that he was both armed and suicidal. When cops arrived at his house to find he wasn't a threat, however, they did find 30 grams of marijuana.

Wachs and his housemate were subsequently charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. As a felony, that's serious stuff. Last week, however, the Chicago Tribune reports that police dropped the charges when they realised that, given the circumstances of their discovery of the weed, there was a pretty good chance "the evidence might not have survived a motion to suppress".

So Whiteboy7thst - who as you can see posed for one of the cutest mugshots of all time - is now free to get back to talkin' about video games on the internet.

Swatting should be treated as a serious crime.
