YouTuber and IRL streamer Brandon ‘Hampton Brandon‘ Grosso was arrested during a live broadcast on September 3, making this yet another run in with the the police in recent months.

Hampton Brandon can’t seem to stay out of trouble, as he’s had a string of arrests during his live broadcasts over the last two years.

On September 3, the streamer was doing an IRL broadcast during the night, when him and his friend decided to get up to some mischief that landed him in hot water yet again with law enforcement. 

Taking out the trash

While streaming with his friend, the two were on a pier by the ocean when Brandon got the idea to take a public trash can and throw it into the ocean.

“You need help? You need some help picking that up?” his friend laughed, as the YouTuber attempted to pick the full trash can up.

“You can’t pick this up. You’re weak!” the streamer replied. His friend then counted him down from three, as the YouTuber lifted the trash can onto the guard rail, before pushing it into the ocean.

As soon as the trash hit the water, the streamer took off running down the pier. His friend, holding the camera, realized that a police vehicle was pulling up. “Oh shit there is someone coming up. Oh fuck, there’s a cop right there. Oh my god” he gasped.

The cameraman then walked closer to the glow of the police lights, revealing multiple officers. “Sorry, the gate was open! It was half open!” the friend exclaimed. After being asked to put the camera down, the two streamers were apprehended. 

The camera, still running on the floor, caught the police informing the duo that they had broadcasted the evidence of their act live. “We have this all. You livestreamed it. So it’s all saved. So we have all that information. So you lying to us is not in your best interest!” the officer warned.

This isn’t the first time the YouTuber has been arrested either. On June 12, 2018 he was arrested during a stream for assault and drinking in public. Then only a month later on July 6, he was arrested by a bounty hunter on stream after having six outstanding warrants in the state of Arizona.

The streamer was also arrested on April 2 of this year while broadcasting, and has been banned on various platforms such as Twitch, Periscope, and YouTube as a result.

As of the time of this article, it’s unclear what the YouTuber was charged with as the police were questioning him about entering an area he didn’t belong. But he also dumped a public trash can into the ocean, so it’s possible that he may also be in trouble for that as well.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
