FD Virtika Wear Owner David Lesh Arrested!

 

On April 1st, FD Virtika Wear Owner David Lesh was arrested for antics portrayed against the people of Breckenridge and Boulder, Colorado while filming for their team video edit titled “Last Friday.” The video, which featured David and athletes B Devince and Everly Gohman partying like rap stars, shooting guns out their car windows plus skiing, stirred up a lot of controversy. He was arrested by Breckenridge PD following a chase that ended with David crashing his car. He was arrested and issued felony gun charges, felony eluding, reckless endangerment, and drug possession.

 

 

As part of his release from jail, the court ordered he issue an apology video. Taking from the famous Lebron James’ playbook, David issued a Lebron-esque apology via the video below.

 

 

The videos and resulting incident have garnished David, a budding young entrepreneur, a tremendous amount of attention. Some have even accused him of staging the whole event. A follower on David’s Facebook Page alleged that it was an April Fool’s stunt. Other fans of David have come out in support of David; defending him and his young brand. The attention though was not positive for the University of Colorado Freeski Club, who employed David as a team coach. David was fired from his position, as ordered by the Chancellor, in the midst of a rail jam he was organizing and sponsoring for the university team.

 

Love his antics or despise them, David has made a huge impression upon the ski community. It’s been a long time since the community has had something exciting to talk about, so you can be sure this will be on the tips of everyone’s tongue for some time.
