Famous YouTube and TikTok stars, Alan and Alex Stokes, have been charged with felony and misdemeanour for being associated with two fake robberies in October 2019. In this prime example of a prank gone horribly wrong, the YouTubers had orchestrated two fake robbery incidents last year. And one, unfortunately, led to an Uber driver being held at gunpoint by the police. The charges against the Stokes brother are severe, and if all are counted, the boys may face up to 4 years in local prison.

On Oct. 15, 2019 Alan and Alex Stokes carried out two fake robbery pranks within the same day. In their first horrible prank, they pretended to have just looted a bank. They called up an Uber and threatened the driver to take them home, to which the driver refused. A bystander figured that the boys were attempting to carjack the Uber, and so he called up the police. As the police arrived, they booked the Uber driver for foul play, but later released him after discovering that he wasn’t involved in the act.

The police then issued a warning to the brothers. But later received emergency calls about a bank being robbed after the brothers had pulled a similar prank on the University of California, Irvine campus. They call wasn’t ignored by the police, and the Stokes brothers were immediately taken into custody for felony.

The brothers have over 4.8 million subscribers on their YouTube channel, The Stokes Twins, and over 25 million followers on TikTok. They posted videos on each account as recently as yesterday. When the incident was reported, the video about their fake robbery was still there on YouTube. But it has since then, been made private.
