YouTuber ‘Dr1ven Industries’ focuses on mental health and suicide prevention – but his charitable mission didn’t stop one malicious individual from staging an attack on the man.

Dr1ven Industries was swatted during the last five minutes of live stream on March 11, after a swatter called 911 pretending to be the YouTuber with claims that he had killed his wife and was holding his son hostage.

However, Dr1ven does not have a son, and his wife was out of the house at the time of the live stream.

Footage from the stream shows police performing a search of Dr1ven’s house, with the YouTuber stating that law enforcement had checked him for weapons and placed him in handcuffs.

Despite the frightening incident, Dr1ven does not harbor any hate against the swatter; however, he made sure to give the perpetrator a solemn message, and hopes to follow the case to the “furthest extent of the law” – even hiring two detectives to settle the issue.

“What you attempted to do, you failed at it,” Dr1ven said to the swatter. “And if you want to try it again with me – bring it.”

Dr1ven’s post has since been met with an outpouring of support from across the mental health community, with commenters vehemently denouncing the swatter’s actions.

Commenters came out in support of Dr1ven’s video on the swatting.

The YouTuber’s livestream was created to discuss drama around fellow mental health creator ‘The Rewired Soul,’ who is undergoing scrutiny for creating dramatic content under the guise of mental health awareness, among other claims.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”

 

After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
