Gixxer Brah Charged
Per the Denton County jail records, Dietzmann was taken into custody on suspicion of assault. Dietzmann’s detention was not disclosed to Hinojosa, who indicated he would forward any inquiries to the organization that acquired the arrest order.
Dietzmann is charged in El Paso County Court after a since-deleted YouTube video from September showed him traveling over 150 mph on I-25 at Garden of the Gods Road, weaving between lanes and the highway shoulder, and squeezing through tiny gaps between vehicles. Dietzmann was wanted by the Colorado State Patrol on suspicion of reckless endangerment, reckless driving, menacing, and other charges.
An agent for the Colorado State Patrol stated that while they were investigating the arrest, they were unable to verify right away if the arrest was made by their agency’s warrant.
Sgt. Marc Miller, a spokesman for the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, explained that although El Paso County was named in the arrest record, they were not the organization that issued the arrest warrant and would handle any extradition of Dietzmann.
Dietzmann was arrested on a warrant related to the speeding charges on Wednesday, according to online court records in Colorado.
According to the Colorado State Patrol, Dietzmann uploads videos to YouTube under the alias Gixxer Brah of himself speeding on various motorbikes on American highways. He often does this by swerving between lanes, through minor gaps in traffic, and on shoulders.
Dietzmann was found via a joint investigation between the El Paso County District Attorney’s Office and the Dallas Police Department. Court documents state that on December 5, an arrest warrant was issued. On January 24, the Colorado State Patrol released a press statement about the case.
