YouTuber films himself going 150 mph in Colorado; arrest warrant issued

DENVER (KDVR) – A YouTuber known for motorcycle videos that typically depict him riding at speeds far above the posted limit has a warrant for his arrest by the Colorado State Patrol.

On Sept. 28, 2023, the YouTuber Gixxer Brah posted a video showing his ride from Colorado Springs to the Denver metro area, which took him about 20 minutes, according to the Colorado State Patrol (CSP).

The department also referred to him as the “Colorado Springs to Denver in 20 minutes guy” in its news release.

“Numerous drivers and online viewers contacted the Colorado State Patrol regarding the incident,” the CSP said.

The Dallas Police Department, El Paso County District Attorney’s Office and Colorado State Patrol worked together and identified the rider as Rendon Dietzmann, 32, of Texas.

Dietzmann’s video included footage of himself traveling at speeds of over 150 mph on Interstate 25. The video does not appear to be publicly posted anymore, but other videos on his channel exhibit his speed and dangerous driving behaviors.

The Colorado State Patrol said the Colorado video demonstrates a “complete disregard for safety” for himself and other motorists.

“Unfortunately, this YouTuber’s driving behavior is not unusual or out of the ordinary,” CSP said in a release. “Mr. Dietzmann has posted multiple videos from different parts of the country on his channel exhibiting similar driving actions.”

CSP issued a warrant for the suspect’s arrest on charges of:

  • Menacing — placed another person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury
  • Engaged in a speed contest
  • Reckless endangerment
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding 40 mph over prima facie limit
  • Engaged in an exhibition of speed
  • Vehicle had no number plates attached

“Illegal and reckless driving behavior will not be tolerated in Colorado,” Sgt. Troy Kessler of the Colorado State Patrol’s Public Affairs Office said in a release. “We care too much for those traveling on our roadways to ignore the blatant disregard for the safety of others.”

The suspect had not been arrested as of Thursday morning, Nexstar’s KDVR has learned.

Earlier this month, the Colorado State Patrol said speeding was the leading factor in fatal and injury crashes in 2023.
