Monday, James Witty apologized about stealing a piece of the car that Paul Walker died in; Witty was arrested last week after a witness reported the information to the police. Witty apologized through social media, which is also one of the ways the police confirmed he stole the piece of the car in the first place, according to the LA Times.

Witty posted a photo of the car on Instagram with a note. It was posted by @jamesonwhitty: “Piece of Paul walkers car, took it off a tow truck at a stop light…#paulwalker” #rip #comeup.”

The suspect was identified as Jameson Witty, 18, after a piece of the red wrecked car was found at a home in Canyon Country in Santa Clarita. The sheriff’s department said that another suspect has also been identified in connection with the theft and is expected to surrender himself to police soon.

The sheriff’s department said that both men may be charged with felony grand theft and tampering with evidence, but the district attorney will make that decision.

Paul Walker, 40, died on the afternoon of November 30 in a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT in Valencia; he was the passenger in the car. Roger Rodas, 38, was driving the vehicle.

Monday, Witty posted this note on Instagram:

“Paul was a childhood idol to me and many. At the time I was not thinking about the consequences it could have, I never wanted it to be like this I wasn’t going to sell the piece to make a profit. Nobody in this world is perfect, we all make mistakes. Some bigger than others.”

Witty was released Friday after posting a $20,000 bail.
