Police Searching for YouTuber Who Filmed Himself at SpaceX Launch Site
How far will YouTubers and TikTok users go to be famous? Maybe a little bit too far, like criminal trespassing.
A warrant has been issued for YouTuber Cesar L. Galaviz after he filmed himself at a SpaceX Starship launch site in Texas.
According to Business Insider, Galaviz posted to his YouTube channel a video taken at the SpaceX facility in South Texas in March.
The post has since been deleted and reposted by another user.
During the video, Galaviz explores the property and launch pad of the SpaceX Starship SN11 rocket, which exploded during a test flight from Boca Chica on March 30 due to a plumbing problem, Space.com reported.
He walks underneath the rocket at one point and films the bottom of the spacecraft.
On April 1, Galaviz apologized for his actions, explaining that he wasn't trying to commit a crime.
During the video, Galaviz said that he knew trespassing was illegal, but at the time, he did not think about it. "I know I should have thought about that before I did it," he said.
In addition, he said that seeing a rocket would be "cool for the channel," and he would never do it again.
The Cameron County Sheriff announced Monday that a criminal trespass warrant had been issued for Galaviz for intentionally entering SpaceX's property.
Authorities believe they last saw him in Conroe, Texas.
I know he thought it was cool to enter the premises of the SpaceX facility, but without permission, you can get in trouble like he is in right now.
The clout's not worth it.
