Vine star Cameron Dallas arrested for vandalism
‘Do it for the Vine’ might come with an arrest record.
Dallas was filming with YouTubers Jc Caylen and Kian Lawley, splattering themselves and the apartment with paint for an upcoming video. TMZ first reported the incident, explaining that cops made two trips to Dallas’ Hollywood apartment during the day, first due to complaints of loud partying, and later because someone reportedly threw a can of paint out of Dallas’ window. Dallas was arrested on felony vandalism charges and held on $20,000 bail.
He was released at 1:30 in the morning, and in true digital celebrity fashion, Dallas and his cohorts already tweeted about the incident.
Just go home, haha today was a trip…

Dallas is no stranger to controversy. In 2013, along with Caylen and fellow Viner Nash Grier, he caused an uproar in the community with a YouTube video suggesting how girls need to look and act to get male attention. Since then Dallas has pulled back from such topics, and he starred in a film for AwesomenessTV, Expelled.
Several other Viners have had run-ins with the authorities while filming videos. Jerome Jarre was detained by the FBI after he tried to film a stunt on an airplane that involved him in a Speedo, while a South Carolina teen who kicked a kitten on camera pled guilty to animal abuse charges after police took action following an Internet campaign to hold him accountable.
