It’s not completely clear what happened here, but it involves 1.) a very expensive McLaren, 2.) a skateboarder and 3.) a little bit of foul language.
The video’s uploader, “Paul Gonzo,” claims the car ran a stop sign and made “a kid fall off his skateboard.” The clip was uploaded on July 17.
After that, the “passenger of the McLaren yelled something at him and the next thing I heard was a SMASH! The windshield was completely shattered.”
At which point the skateboarder, probably wisely, takes off running.
The Denver Police Department has no record of this happening.
No one has called for service from this location since April. It’s possible Paul Gonzo has been saving this video for a while, or that nobody bothered to call it in.
The McLaren definitely took a hit, though. The video doesn’t show the impact, but it does show that the windshield was undamaged when the McLaren rolled the stop sign.
If this was a hoax, it was an expensive one.
