Longboarder Wanted By South African Police for DH Run

Skateboarder Decio Lourenco's popularity is soaring thanks to his starring role in a YouTube video that shows him hurtling down a steep mountain road at 68 mph to set off a speed camera. Now the cops in South Africa are after Lourenco for what presumably amounts to reckless driving.

"We've handed over the matter to traffic officials and want him arrested," JP Smith, the Cape Town official in charge of safety and security, told Reuters on Thursday. "The speed limit is irrelevant. He is seen careening down the road in a reckless and dangerous manner."

The video, titled, "Spoofing the Traffic Camera--Longboarding without Limits," has garnered more than 212,000 views since it was uploaded on Jan. 26.

We generally see him crushing it in Bear Mountain's Sunday In The Park episodes, but this year, Sams is lost. We took him out of his element and on the road with friends to film for a full length video part dropping Fall 2013. In this episode, Erik Leon joins the crew for a week of Montana mayhem and shredding in the middle of nowhere. Let it roll!"
