Man who posted videos of stolen guns sentenced

VANCOUVER, Wash. — A 23-year-old man who videotaped himself with stolen guns and then posted videos on YouTube has been sentenced to four years in prison.

The Columbian reported that Ronnie Michael Wynn admitted to firing a pistol out a car in a populated neighborhood. He was sentenced Thursday.

Wynn, who calls himself “Ron Gotti,” had outstanding warrants when he was arrested July 16 after he crashed a stolen car. Vancouver police officers then found videos on Wynn’s Facebook page and on YouTube, which led to the gun charges.

Wynn said he’s a Norteno gang member and a heroin addict.

Wynn pleaded guilty to discharging a firearm, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of a stolen firearm, trafficking stolen property and forgery.
