Pair Charged for Swiping Part from Paul Walker Crash Car
(LOS ANGELES) -- Two men allegedly caught on camera swiping the T-top roof from the wrecked Porsche in which Paul Walker and friend Roger Rodas were killed on Nov. 30 are facing jail time.
According to the Santa Clarita Sentinel, the L.A. County District Attorney's office has thrown the book at 18-year-old Jameson Witty and 25-year-old Anthony Janow, and they face a maximum of four and a half years in prison for felony grand theft of personal property and misdemeanors of destroying evidence and resisting, obstructing, and delaying a peace officer.
Witty is the man TMZ says can be seen on cellphone video grabbing the part from the tow truck hauling away what was left of the doomed Porsche after it was removed from the crash site; Janow was reportedly the driver who sped him away with the item.
As ABC News Radio reported, Witty apparently then posted now-deleted pictures of the item on his Instagram account. "Piece of Paul Walker's car, took it off a tow truck at a stop light," the user jamesonwitty posted at the time.
Witty was arrested last Thursday night and later released on bail. Janow will reportedly surrender to the authorities on Tuesday.
