British YouTube star Calum McSwiggan pleads guilty in vandalism case
YouTube personality Calum McSwiggan has pleaded guilty to felony vandalism in an incident in which he claimed he was the victim of a hate crime.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said Calum pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three years of supervised probation and 52 anger management sessions.
The British star was charged with vandalising a car belonging to a man who he had an altercation with outside a West Hollywood gay club in late June, then falsely claiming he was beaten by the man and his friends.
The 26-year-old claimed in an Instagram post that the men broke his teeth. Authorities said Calum was seen hitting himself with a jail payphone.
A phone message left for his lawyer was not immediately returned.
