YouTube sensation Logan Paul kicked out of Yosemite National Park

Logan Paul, a YouTube sensation with more than 17 million followers of his “Logan Paul Vlogs,” went on a camping trip to Yosemite National Park for his 23rd birthday and ended up getting kicked out for behavior “not conducive to the park environment.”

Paul and his entourage were seen sitting in tents attached to the top of a school bus as it was moving.

Yosemite spokesman Scott Gediman told the Fresno Bee that Paul was cited for unsafe operation of a motor vehicle—the school bus known as the “Cool Bus”—and for improper food storage. He was eventually asked to leave Tuesday after fellow campers complained about noise.

A park official told The Blast that riding atop the bus “wasn’t the smartest thing to do.” He was issued a citation, one of two he would receive, according to the Bee.

When Paul and his entourage first arrived at the park, he avoided a ticket when confronted by a park ranger upon waking up in a Yosemite parking lot, the Bee reported.

Paul included the first encounter with a ranger in his “I got attacked by the Logang” video on YouTube, which has over 3.5 million views since being posted Monday; it starts around the 1:56 mark:

“So, it was my birthday, and we just wanted to come to Yosemite and we got here at 4 a.m. and this [parking lot] was empty,” Paul told the park ranger. “So we just kind of parked here.”

The ranger replied, “So a couple of issues with that. If everyone who wanted to camp wherever they felt like it, think of how trashed this place would be.” Another issue was the bus taking up five spaces.

Gediman told the Bee Paul’s behavior “was not conducive to the park environment.”

Paul’s describes himself on YouTube as a “kid living in Los Angeles. I make comedy vids, travel a lot, I have a pretty colorful parrot named Maverick and a savage dog named Kong. This is my life.”

Paul made headlines earlier this year when he posted video reportedly showing video of a body of someone who allegedly died by suicide. He later apologized.
