Prankster 'DooGang3X' taunts police after fireworks stunt

Fourth of July stunt gets prankster attention from police, firefighters

PALMETTO BAY, Fla. – Instagram user DooGang3X was taunting police officers Thursday night in Palmetto Bay. 

The self-described comedian, actor and entertainer is committed to his pranks. But police officers and firefighters think he went too far on the Fourth of July when he set off fireworks inside of a store. 

"Never would I ever put anybody in danger," DooGang3X said about the video."That's not my goal, that's not my cup of tea."

While he rushed inside the Dollar Tree store at 13911 South Dixie Highway in Pinecrest, an accomplice was filming. After he lit the firecracker, he placed it on the floor near flammable objects and registers. 

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded to the store. No one was hurt. 

"Let's play hide and seek then ... come find me," DooGang3X wrote on Instagram. "Boy I been hiding from da police since I was 12."

Other pranks online include a video of him running into a nail salon pretending to having been stabbed by a man in a Mickey Mouse costume. Another video filmed in Miami shows him chasing Mickey Mouse.
