Nathan ‘Doggface’ Apodaca, the TikToker who went viral for chillaxin’ to the max while riding his skateboard to Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams,’ has been arrested for marijuana possession. The Idaho Falls man shot to social media fame in 2020, but that didn’t stop the 39-year-old from being arrested in his home for his love of Mary Jane, per TMZ.
- Yes, weed is illegal in Idaho. Despite the fact that it’s stupid that it’s illegal anywhere in the U.S. (or anywhere in the world), Idaho apparently still thinks weed possession is worth wasting police resources on. They booked Nathan Apodaca on possession and paraphernalia charges.
- He was booked and released the same day. According to reports, he was released on $600 bond shortly after being booked in. Kinda makes the whole system seem like a bit of a farce, eh?
- Apodaca said his rights weren’t respected during or after the arrest. In a statement to UNILAD, Apodaca said: “During the arrest, the officers failed to read me my Miranda rights. Initially, when officers found weed they said they were only going to write a ticket. They then found a gun and told me I was under arrest because I had a felony on my record and I wasn’t allowed to possess a firearm. However, I do not have a felony on my record, which I told the officers. Despite me telling them this, I was taken into custody. I was held in jail for several hours without bond before they told me they make a huge mistake. Then was told I was only being held on the weed charge and could bond out.”
- Nathan Apodaca is actually a cool guy. Before his TikTok fame, he was living in a tent on a dirt road along the Snake River. However, he eventually got a job fighting wildfires and bought himself a motorhome to live in. His TikTok success allowed him to hand that motorhome over to rental company Outdoorsy so that fans could come and stay in it. Better yet, all the money that was raised went to charities to support the homeless population in Idaho. If that’s not awesome, I don’t know what is.
