A YOUTUBER has been arrested after dramatic footage showed him riding his motorcycle at speeds of 175mph.
Video shared last year showed Rendon Tyrell Dietzmann, 32, weaving through traffic at high speeds as he traveled from Colorado Springs to Denver.
The journey usually takes at least an hour, but Dietzmann, known as Gixxer Brah, completed it in 20 minutes.
He was arrested in Texas, on Wednesday, per The Denton County Sheriff’s Office.
Dietzmann is facing an assault charge, according to cops.
The charge was issued by authorities in El Paso, Colorado.
It’s not known if he will be extradited to Colorado.
Dietzmann was taken into custody after cops put out an arrest warrant.
He was wanted on a slew of charges, including engaging in speed contests, reckless endangerment, reckless driving, and speeding 40mph over the speed limit.
He was also accused of driving without a license plate.
Footage shared by Colorado State Patrol showed Dietzmann zooming past cars on Interstate 25.
He clocked top speeds of 175mph as he weaved between cars and trucks.
Cars on the interstate looked as if they were stationary as Dietzmann sped past.
“Illegal and reckless driving behavior will not be tolerated in Colorado,” Troy Kessler, of the Colorado State Patrol told the CBS affiliate KKTV.
“We care too much for those traveling on our roadways to ignore the blatant disregard for the safety of others.”
The YouTuber shared the footage online but it has since been deleted.
“I like to wheelie… and go fast. Always trying to ride new bikes,” his online bio says.
Dietzmann has previously responded to the footage on his Instagram account.
A fan shared the clip, prompting him to say that he didn’t do anything wrong.
Dietzmann has more than 250,000 subscribers on YouTube.
