The viral video shows several cars moving in a convoy blocking others as Prince, standing on top of one car with his friends, disobeying traffic laws. Few others are also seen hanging from the windows of their vehicles, which included expensive SUVs and sedans, as loud music continues blaring as the speed down the highway towards Ghaziabad.

After his arrest, Prince admitted that the viral video was taken in November last year on his birthday. He also admitted that the video, which he shared on his social media handles, was shot on NH-24 near Shakarpur. Following his arrest, Price confessed breaking traffic rules. He has also appealed to his YouTube subscribers to refrain from breaking traffic rules and standing on top of moving cars.

Price's arrest comes days after Gurugram Police nabbed two more YouTube influencers for throwing cash from a moving car recently. The duo, identified as Jorawar Singh Kalsi and Gurpreet Singh, were seen in a viral video throwing currency notes on the Golf Course road from a moving Baleno car. The video was a recreation of a scene from a popular web series titled ‘Farzi’.
