A popular streamer was live on YouTube when local police put him in cuffs, placing him under arrest for breaching drinking in public laws and ‘assault by threat’ in Austin, Texas.

The world of IRL (In Real Life) streaming can be a bizarre place, with the some of the most popular taking viewers on a daily journey where they attempt to be as entertaining as possible – with a mixed bag of results.

Some of the most well-known include the likes of ICE_POSEIDON and his entourage, who have been involved in countless controversies in pursuit of exciting content in their 24/7 IRL coverage of their daily lives.

One such streamer is ‘Hampton Brandon’, an IRL broadcaster who has been previously banned from just about every streaming platform including Twitch, YouTube and even periscope in the past.

While live on YouTube in Austin, Texas, two police officer’s arrived on the scene and immediately apprehended the streamer, real name Brandon Grosso.

It has been speculated that viewers of his stream perhaps called the police, an essentially would might be called a swatting incident, although this cannot be confirmed.

The moment Hampton Brandon was arrested can be viewed below, the original YouTube stream has since been taken down. In the clip you can see Brandon comply with the officer’s requests, so it is unclear from this section why he was charged with Assault by Threat.

Also, oddly, at the start of the clip, the officer addresses Brandon as “Mr Poseidon”, which hints at them possibly being given a report of the infamous ICE_POSEIDON, rather than Grosso himself.

The arrest record was later found and posted to Reddit by u/HurkaDarpa, showing full details and charges which Grosso faced.

He has now been released from custody, and has since posted on Twitter with his common tagline ‘Ten Toes Down’.

At the time of writing, it is unknown if YouTube, where Grosso was live at the time of the incident, have or will hand down any disciplinary action, or if any of the stream content breached their terms of service.

Dr Disrespect’s Halloween ‘Doctober’ contest has returned and with it, fans of the Two-Time have unveiled their best cosplays of the legendary streamer.

Given Doc’s larger-than-life personality and outfit with the red vest, black mullet, mustache, combat boots and sunglasses, he’s cosplay material.

The contest is simple, post a picture of yourself dressed as Doc and tweet it with the hashtag #Doctober for a chance to win prizes from the Two-Time himself.

While Dr Disrespect hasn’t picked his winners yet, here are five Doctober cosplays we think are deserving of tasting victory.


There’s a lot in this photo that makes it stand out from the crowd. Primarily, it’s the theme of the 1993/1994 BlockBuster video game championship that Doc has built his “Two Time” moniker around.

For one, you have the podium with the Doc cosplayer standing above two children as a man dressed as a BlockBuster employee hands out a trophy.

The BlockBuster video cases in the back keep the immersion intact while a Sega Genesis shows what appears to be NBA Jam. This was just well-done in general.


This one amplifies the Halloween aspect of the cosplay with some horror elements going on.

The cosplay itself is well done with the sweat pants featuring the logo, vest, mullet and sunglasses all intact. Meanwhile, the background features a spooky full moon and peashooters dropping in.

On the ground, the zombified hand reaching out of the grave secures its place on our list primarily for the Halloween theme.


Working together with your spouse on a cosplay deserves some credit, and that’s exactly what this couple did to recreate Mrs Assassin’s Instagram photo.

This unique cosplay has the wife standing on her husband with a knife by his throat – perfectly emulating the original.

Her husband’s pose as Doc is also extremely well-done, so this one is definitely a serious contender.


This is most likely the most standard Doc cosplay on this list, but it looks so authentic we couldn’t not mention it.

Nothing fancy, just an extremely well-crafted Doc outfit equipped with an authentic mustache. It just works, and it does so perfectly.


Kids dressed up as Doc is nothing new, but there’s something about a five-year-old with a mullet drinking G-Fuel that is downright hilarious.

As far as the outfit goes, once again, this kid’s parents nail it – all the boxes are checked. It also really helps that the boy’s attitude while posing for the video seems to match Doc’s energy, which is a major plus.

There is only one day left until Halloween, so it’s not to late for you to enter the contest itself and show the YouTube streamer what you’ve got.
