As if downtown LA could use any more traffic, this one upcoming rapper was determined to make sure his music video stood out, even if it meant causing a major traffic jam during rush hour.
The California Highway Patrol received multiple calls that a man wearing only his boxers was literally on a freeway sign which caused a two-hour hold up in traffic. The stunt man is identified as 29-year-old Alexander Dunn who performs under the stage name Dephree is an aspiring rapper who was just trying to shoot his music video.
Unfortunately authorities wasn’t impressed and encouraged Dephree to get down using their help. At first they feared he was suicidal but then realized that this was an extreme prank. Dephree even did a back flip off of the sign right before he got put in handcuffs.
He was booked on suspicion of delaying a police officer, trespassing on state property and failure to obey a regulatory sign. Riders were so upset, one driver told him that he missed the birth of his kid because of his stunt.
