Earlier this week, damning pictures showed a crew of Canadians walking across the equally delicate and dangerous Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park. The group, which operates under the clothing and social media brand High On Life SundayFundayz, is currently enduring a firestorm of social media vitriol and now they can count criminal charges among their other woes reports the Bozeman Chronicle.
After filing a criminal complaint in federal court, warrants have been issued for Charles Ryker Gamble, Alexey Andriyovych Lyakh, and Justis Cooper Price-Brown. In addition to those charges, the men could face additional fines and jail time for failing to apply for a National Park filming permit. Such permits are required of anyone intending to use National Park footage for commercial use.
The group has since apologized for their wrongdoing via Facebook (4,385 comments as of today).
“We would like to apologize to our community. Three days ago we were lucky enough to visit Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and made the unfortunate error of leaving the pathway. We did not respect the protected environment we were exploring, and we want to acknowledge our wrongdoing.” – High On Life Facebook Post
Authorities are now on the look out for the accused members of High on Life Sunday Fundayz.
