A teen was arrested for allegedly stealing parts off the car that Paul Walker died in. He apparently didn’t realize what these morbid souvenirs would cost him, because he’s in quite a bit of hot water today, according to “Fox and Friends” live on Friday morning Dec. 6.

Ace Showbiz on Dec 6, reports that Jameson Witty is the 18-year-old who was arrested on suspicion of stealing parts of the car that Walker lost his life in. The demolished car was on the back of a flatbed in transport from the accident scene at the time of the alleged theft.

Besides the eye witnesses who saw Witty take the car parts, Witty may have also incriminated himself. The smoking gun for evidence could be his bragging about having pieces of the Paul Walker death car on his Facebook page, along with photos.

Apparently this teen and a 25-year-old friend followed the flatbed truck transporting the remains of the car to a storage location. When the truck stopped at a light, the teen allegedly jumped out and grabbed two pieces of what was left of the red sports car.

The other man with Witty, who was driving the car, is said to be out of state. According to “Fox and Friends” on Friday, the unnamed other man is negotiating turning himself in with the L.A.P.D.. It is not known what the driver will be charged with. Investigators have requested that Witty and the man who was with him both be charged with the felony of grand theft and tampering with evidence.

The 2005 Porsche Carrera GT was speeding when it crashed into the cement base of a light pole with Paul Walker of “Fast and Furious” fame as a passenger. Walker and his friend Roger Rodas, who was the driver of the car, perished in this crash that engulfed the car in flames upon impact.
