An Orange County daredevil famous on YouTube for
jumping off buildings and landmarks was placed under investigation by
police after reportedly jumping from a Laguna Beach hotel last week and
Anthony Booth Armer, 28, of Laguna Niguel was hospitalized after
injuring his feet when a stunt went awry at the Pacific Edge Hotel.
In a YouTube video posted on New Year’s Day, Armer – known as 8Booth –
is seen jumping off a rooftop and striking a concrete pool edge with
his feet before tumbling into the water.
The video also shows photos of the injuries Armer sustained in the
late-night incident. He posted another video Tuesday of hospital
technicians pulling bandages from his feet.
The Laguna Beach Police Department was notified of the incident after a hotel manager called Thursday, Sgt. Tim Kleiser said.
The manager saw on surveillance footage from the previous night that
someone was trespassing on hotel property around 8:20 p.m., Kleiser
said. Employees apparently came across Armer.
“There were two employees that told the manager about it,” Kleiser
said. “One of the employees assisted a female friend of (Armer) and
helped him get into a car, and they drove off.”
Armer started a GoFundMe page Monday asking people to help him raise
$10,000 for his medical expenses. He had raised more than $1,200.
“I am still in the hospital,” Armer wrote on the page. “Just seeking a
little support to keep doing what I’m doing or else I’ll be working the
rest of my life to pay this off. Asking a small favor from you. A
donation of any kind would be phenomenal.”
Armer was arrested in October for two misdemeanor counts related to
other jumps, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
Below are videos from his other jumps.
