Rider cited for watercraft jump over road in YouTube stunt

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. (AP) — A YouTube stunt that involved jumping a personal watercraft over a Minnesota road has amassed hundreds of thousands of views and a couple of citations.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has issued two citations — the equivalent of traffic tickets — to the rider. Conservation Officer Jacob Swedberg tells KFGO-AM that Jake Sherbrooke was cited for careless operation of a personal watercraft and for not wearing a life jacket.

The stunt was recorded last month at a gravel road near Rollag in western Minnesota, about 188 miles (303 kilometers) northwest of Minneapolis. The participants set up a ramp to catapult the watercraft over the road. Sherbrooke was not hurt.

The event was captured on a YouTube video produced by CboysTV. The video has received more than 400,000 views.
