Popular YouTube duo Samuel ‘Sam’ Golbach and Cole ‘Colby’ Brock were arrested for trespassing on a construction site at an abandoned school building.
The two YouTubers, known for exploring abandoned sites and cordoned-off areas, were taken into custody on January 16, after being discovered at a school in Florida’s Hillsborough County.
The two were released the following morning after posting bail, and have since taken to Twitter to explain the situation.
“I’m alive and free!” Sam wrote of the debacle. “Just wanted to say we are both safe and okay, sorry for any worry. After such a long process, Colby’s bond is now paid for (he will be released soon), and we should be both back in California tomorrow.”
Colby had a bit of a humorous take on the situation, writing, “Going to jail in a Justin Bieber shirt isn’t the best idea. But I’m okay, love you guys.”

The duo have a history of traveling to dangerous locations, as evidenced by the slew of vlogs on their YouTube channel. From abandoned hotels and hospitals to haunted orphanages and more, it comes as little surprise that the pair were finally busted for their daring stunts - although they’ve made no mention of halting their efforts any time soon.
Sam and Colby’s channel boasts over two million subscribers, with fans clamoring for their release upon news of their arrest on January 16. It looks like the YouTubers are safe and sound - at least until their next excursion.
