A Tesla driver was filmed flying 50ft through the air one of LA’s steepest streets on Saturday in what is believed to have been a stunt for TikTok.

The LAPD is looking for the driver and wading through hundreds of tips identifying him as TikTok and YouTube influencer Dominykas Zeglaitis, who goes by the online name Durte Dom.

He took credit for the stunt in multiple TikTok videos, claiming he was high on THC gummies at the time. Others however say he was not there, and is trying to profit off of the viral video by selling the gummies he claimed made him high enough to carry out the stunt.

The LAPD offered a $ 1,000 reward for information but is no longer accepting tips after being inundated with information.

Detective Calvin Dehesa told DailyMail.com on Monday that it wasn’t a ‘priority’ to find Durte Dom and that the driver of the vehicle would be released soon after being picked up because they are only being charged with a misdemeanor.

He added that police are trying to contact him but do not know exactly where he is. Residents of the street are furious about the lack of action.

It’s unclear what model the car was but the cheapest Tesla is around $ 47,000.

The LAPD says it is in the process of contacting him and Alex Choi, the other influencer present, to find out more about who was responsible.

In a tweet on Sunday, the LAPD said: ‘We are asking the public to no longer send us any more tips regarding @dominykasor.

‘We have reached out to him on his social media account. We are asking any witnesses to also come forward. ‘

Musician Jordan Hook, whose Subaru was damaged, says there was a cat in the Tesla when the stunt was performed.

‘Last night, I woke up to the sound of a jolting crash outside my window a little after midnight.

‘I came out to see a destroyed Tesla rammed into the back of my Subaru.

‘My wheels were turned in towards the curb, and when the Tesla hit my car it jumped the curb, wrenching the wheels under and twisting them up so that it is now un-driveable … jumping a car (with a cat inside) on a neighborhood street in the middle of the night just for likes and followers is NOT COOL, ‘he said in the fundraiser.
