However, the lessons of his childhood did not appear to stick and Latarian Milton soon found himself at the other side of the law as a teenager. This prompted a reminder of the infamous moment of his life way earlier. If you are still not familiar with what went down, take a look at who he is, his life and where he is now.
Latarian Milton – Biography, Age
Latarian Milton was born on the 30th of August, 2000 to mother, Sheneequa, who is the only known parent of the former viral video star. Sheneequa, gave birth to him at the age of 16 and although she was pretty young at the time, one can presume that she has no idea that one day, her son would become an internet star.
He was born in Palm Beach, Florida and there he was raised by his mother, along with his grandmother, Vikkita Stratford. He attended middle school and just when it seemed like he was having a seemingly normal childhood, the incident that made him a viral star occurred.
In April 2008, Latarian Milton took his grandmother’s car keys, a Dodge Durango car and decided to go on a joyride with his friend in what he later described as revenge because his mother wouldn’t let his friends come over to watch cartoon with him.
When Latarian took the car, he had a friend of his in the passenger seat while he was behind the wheel barely seeing where he was going. At first the ride seemed to be going well until as expected of a child who had never driven, it turned chaotic. In his obvious lack of driving experience and physical incapability, he ran over two mailboxes, grazed a lot of other moving cars and eventually rammed into two parked cars in the parking lot of the Costco.
When the chaos ended, he was quickly apprehended by sheriff deputies of the Palm Beach County who had been received a call by a concerned citizen of a child behind the wheel.
News of the incident got to the news station, West Palm Beach WPBF, and the resulting interview of Latarian Milton sparked his internet fame, where he famously said ‘it is fun to do bad things’.
The video of the interview, which was uploaded to YouTube, sparked several memes and parody videos that ultimately made Latarian Milton a popular digital personality for a while, so much that he featured in an episode of the famous TV show, The Boondocks.
However, it was not the end of Latarian’s public incidents with another happening shortly after the first when he was caught attacking his grandmother in Wal-Mart for her refusal to buy him chicken wings.
The two incidents happening close to each other prompted child protective services to demand a mandatory mental health evaluation for Latarian Milton.
Latarian Milton might still be growing but he already has the body height of a grown adult with a height of 5 feet 5 inches and an accompanying body weight of 73kg.
Latarian has the body shape of a fat person and his body measurement is 37 inches for his chest size, 36 inches for his waist and 36 inches for his hips size. He has an accompanying bicep size of 14.5 inches.
The 2008 viral video star is an African American and thus, has black hair and black eyes.
Where is He now?
Following the incident in 2008, Latarian Milton harbored dreams of becoming a sportsman, specifically as a footballer or in the US Military with a special interest in the US Navy. While none of those have completely eluded him, the chances of them happening are getting slimmer.
Although it has been over a decade since the incident, Latarian Milton still continues in the habit and behavior that made him into a viral star, having been arrested along with some friends for armed robbery. The crime, which was committed in a weekend on May 2017 saw Latarian once again at the driver’s seat, speeding away after he and his friends had robbed a Lyft driver of his car and belongings.
At the moment, Latarian Milton is believed to be awaiting judgment at juvenile detention where he is facing a possible 15 years in jail or life imprisonment for his crime.
