Brent Roberts escalator stunt Mall at Wellington Green: YouTube inspired stunt leads to arrest

WELLINGTON, Fla. - A YouTube inspired escalator stunt  landed a Wellington man in jail.

Brent Roberts, 24, is facing criminal mischief charges after his attempt at an escalator helicopter stunt -- crash landed -- smashing $2,000 worth of glass at The Mall at Wellington Green.

The 'escalator helicopter' is when a person lies across the railing of two side-by-side escalators. Moving in opposite directions, the person rotates around like a helicopter blade. That is -- unless the trick goes wrong.
