Beyond Fame
  • While filming his pranks Atwood many a times fell into trouble with law. In March 2014, in the midst of filming a prank, he and his acquaintances were arrested by the Columbus Police Department with charges of causing a feeling of terror and anxiety and for chaotic behaviour. He received bail and fought the case and won it on the ground of freedom of speech and expression of art. In the middle of such predicament he received support from his umpteen fans, many of whom attended the court to follow the case and support him.
