Los Angeles Police Considered Dom ‘A Person Of Interest’ Due To His TikTok Video Of Tesla Crashing
On March 21, 2022, the LA Police department reported about a Tesla crashing into two vehicles. On Twitter, LA police pointed out that they have received “50 tips” and they all are about Durte Dom. And they have an eye on Zeglaitis.

The video posted on TikTok had 11 million views. Moreover, Durte Dom later made a YouTube video explaining that he was not part of the accident and that it was just a stunt.
I crashed my brand new Tesla. I got fined $100,000 from Los Angeles county, made the news, and even the cops showed up to my door. And the craziest part of all this was? That none of it was real. This is the story of how a boring Saturday night turned me into a viral wanted criminal.
Dom has claimed in the video that it all was fake and he did it to gain more views and fame. He also admitted to it on social media.
With some Hollywood magic and some good angles we were able to make it look like my car was that car…we edited our clips, sprinkled in some Hollywood magic and posted it. I wake up to 20 missed calls, 100 of texts people blowing me up and 6 million views in this TikTok video.DOMINYKAS via YouTube
