Former Vlog Squad member Durte Dom claims he is the driver of the Tesla and that he was under the influence of a controlled substance when the $150,000 stunt went viral. Now, the Los Angeles Police Department is looking for him. 

On March 20, Dexerto reported that YouTuber Alex Choi filmed a driver launching an alleged $150,000 Tesla into the air on a public street just seconds before crashing the car into a trash can and a parked car.

Luckily the driver and his cat were found to be okay after the wreck, but the LAPD is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the driver as they committed a misdemeanor hit-and-run.
