IRL streamer EBZ pulled over by cops again just days after $700 fine

IRL YouTube streamer Ebenezer ‘EBZ’ Lembe found himself pulling into the side of the road once again at the instruction of police officers, just over a week after receiving a $700 fine for speeding.

IRL streaming lets those who broadcast leave their homes and head out into the world, bringing their audience along with them to explore the sights and sounds of the world through the eyes of their favorite content creator.

EBZ has been using his IRL broadcasts to drive around the city of Los Angeles, but has had a number of run-ins with law enforcement officers, and less than a fortnight after receiving a hefty fine for speeding, the streamer saw the flashing blue lights in his rear-view mirror again as they pulled him over.

The streamer found himself pulled over again after paying a $700 fine in December.

While streaming on January 9, EBZ was driving around the Californian city with his camera facing out towards the road. The streamer was dodging and weaving through traffic as he sped around, eventually coming to a set of traffic lights.

He could be seen speeding up behind slower cars, then cutting across lanes to get past them, flying up behind a truck pulling a trailer, veering to the left to get past it, before speeding up and cutting back in front.

Just as the maneuver took place, what looks like a police car passes him going the opposite direction, with EBZ coming to a stop at a set of traffic lights. It seems he knew what was coming, telling his stream: “Oh, I’m f**ked,” while stationary at the junction. As he turned left onto a new street, the unmistakable noise of police sirens fired up behind him, with the streamer saying “Oh yeah,” as he pulled into the side of the road.

After stopping the car, EBZ quickly turned off the stream, choosing not to record his conversation with the police officer who was heading for his window.

Clip starts at 5:13 for mobile users.

EBZ found himself parked on the road, getting told off by a police officer back on December 27, when he was caught driving at 90miles-per-hour in a 65 mph zone. That time, it earned him a $700 ticket, and almost getting a second from the same officer for not having license plates on his vehicle.

Whether the streamer was forced to pay $700 on this occasion remains to be seen.


Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
