YouTuber accused of recording motorcycle ride going 150 mph in Colorado arrested in Texas

Published

on

A Texas YouTuber accused of recording himself going more than 150 mph on a motorcycle down a Colorado highway has been arrested in his home state, and the extradition process is underway. 

Rendon Dietzmann, 32, was arrested Feb. 7 in Denton County, Texas, on Colorado State Patrol’s extraditable warrant, the El Paso County District Attorney announced Friday. The process of taking him back to Colorado, for his first court appearance, is in progress.

Denton County Sheriff’s Office online arrest records show Dietzmann was charged with assault, which is not one of the charges listed on the warrant for the speeding case from Sept. 28, 2023, when Dietzmann allegedly zoomed between Colorado Springs and the Denver metro area in 20 minutes on Interstate 25 for social media purposes. 

The drive between the two cities typically takes an hour.

The video, no longer on YouTube but shared by CSP last month, appears to show Dietzmann going at high speeds while squeezing through small gaps in traffic and traveling on the highway shoulder. 

Dietzmann is known as Gixxer Brah on YouTube. His page description says, “I like to wheelie… and go fast.” The account has more than 250,000 subscribers and nearly 500 videos posted to its page, with the most recent upload six days ago. YouTube previously told Fox News Digital that it has removed content from the channel in the past, adding that its policies prohibit “harmful or dangerous acts” that “have a serious risk of severe bodily harm or death.”

Colorado State Patrol coordinated with the Dallas Police Department in Texas and the El Paso County District Attorney’s Office to identify the rider as Dietzmann. He was arrested at a home in Justin, Texas.

Published

on

The Texas man named as a person of interest in connection with the disappearance Audrii Cunningham babysat the 11-year-old girl, according to local reports.

The Texas Department of Public Safety (TDPS) Southeast Region on Saturday named Don Steven McDougal, 42, as a person of interest in the girl’s disappearance, and Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested him on Feb. 16 on unrelated charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Audrii’s mother, Cassie Matthews, told FOX 26 Houston that she believed McDougal was friends with Audrii’s father and would babysit the 11-year-old girl while he was staying at her father’s home.

Audrii has been missing since the morning of Feb. 15, when she was last seen at her residence in the 100 block of Lakeside Drive, in Polk County, Texas.

The 11-year-old girl “should have caught the school bus at her neighborhood bus stop; however, school officials reported to the Sheriff’s Office that the school bus did not pick Audrii up, nor did she report to school,” Polk County authorities said in a press release.

A statewide Amber Alert was issued on Feb. 16.

This California city will issue fines for off-leash dogs

Pasadena residents who let their dogs roam free without a leash could be fined up to $500 beginning Thursday, city officials announced Wednesday.

It’s prohibited for dogs to be off-leashed, except for at Alice’s Dog Park in Viña Vieja Park and Playhouse Village Dog Park, which are designated off-leash areas.

“To ensure the safety of all park visitors, the City of Pasadena will begin issuing citations to dog owners with dogs off-leash starting Thursday, Feb. 22. Pasadena Humane will enforce leash requirements and continue to provide the community with education on dog-leashing,” a news release said.

Officials also stated that dogs on leashes “reduce the risk for dog attacks on other dogs and humans and lower the risk of other accidents, such as dogs being hit by passing cars.”

Anyone who sees an unleashed dog outside designated areas is encouraged to contact Pasadena Humane at (626) 792-7151, ext. 102.

The 7-year-old boy shot at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church earlier this month is fighting for his life after multiple surgeries to his brain and skull, according to his grandmother. 

Shooter Genesse Ivonne Moreno, 36, entered the Houston megachurch around 2 p.m. with her own son, Samuel Moreno Carranza, before opening fire with an AR-15. The young boy and another man were critically wounded at the scene.

The boy’s grandmother, Walli Carranza, wrote in a Wednesday Facebook post that “half of his right skull 1708619354 has to be surgically removed during two surgeries done in less than 24 hours.”

“He was in cardiac arrest multiple times and no one can determine whether he has significant brain activity because his scalp tissue is too friable to allow the attachment of EEG wires,” the boy’s grandmother wrote. 

Moreno’s second victim, a 57-year-old man, was shot in the leg but was in stable condition later that day, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner previously told Fox News Digital.

One of two armed, off-duty law enforcement officers working security at the church shot Moreno in a subsequent firefight – she would later succumb to her injuries. 

It is unclear whether the boy was shot by his mother or the security guards trying to subdue her.

“I don’t want to speculate on that, but what I would say is if it was, unfortunately, and that female, that suspect put that baby in danger, I’m going to put that blame on her,” Finner said during a press conference last week.

After Moreno “went down,” Finner said, the officers at the scene quickly searched her backpack and vehicle for explosives due to earlier threats she’d made.

“My faith tradition demands of me compassion, and I have it for my deceased daughter-in-law,” the boy’s grandmother wrote in her post. “She has schizophrenia and, now we know, anti-social personality disorder. Her brain was broken.” 

The grandmother claimed that, despite more than 20 previous reports of neglect and medical abuse to child protective services in Harris and Montgomery Counties, law enforcement never intervened in the at-risk woman’s life. Previously, the grandmother claimed, guns were found in Moreno’s diaper bag, purse and car by authorities.

The bereaved woman wrote that her grandson had “no protection of his God-given right to life” because “the very same legislators who claim to be ‘pro-life’ believe that unbridled gun rights matter and the right to life does not.”

“What is the excuse for those who knew and did nothing and for legislators who refuse to allow red flag laws but do allow anyone to buy an assault weapon?” Carranza asked.

She called for legislators to “repeal the second amendment” on the grounds that “[the first] means too much to allow the second.”

Previously, Moreno’s neighbors detailed years of harassment and threats from Moreno and their unsuccessful attempts to alert authorities to her unstable condition.

Moreno’s motivation for the shooting is still unclear. Antisemitic writings were found inside the vehicle she drove to the church, police said. Although police did not say what was written, they suggested that it may have stemmed from a familial dispute involving her ex-husband and his family – some of whom are Jewish, police say. 

The word “Palestine” was written on the woman’s gun, Fox News Digital previously reported.

Moreno, who is originally from El Salvador, had a criminal history including convictions for assaulting a police officer in 2009 and forgery in 2010.

Fox News Digital previously reported that she had six previous arrests dating back to 2005, and used several male and female aliases, including Jeffrey Escalante Moreno.

Members of the FBI, the Texas Rangers, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and the Conroe and Houston Police Departments were investigating a property Monday in Conroe, north of Houston, that was believed to be Moreno’s residence, KPRC reported.

 

Investigators said they will look into how Moreno was able to purchase the two guns, one of which, Hassig said, was legally purchased in December.

Yesterday, the church held its first service since the shooting, with Osteen telling parishioners the event had caused “a lot of trauma.” Houston Mayor John Whitmire and police Chief Troy Finner were both invited on stage to speak.
