Boonk IG Gets Probation For Miami Gardens Donut Theft
John Hill walked into a Miami Gardens Dunkin’ Donuts, took a tray of food worth $38, and then returned it.
The video stunt, a trademark of Hill’s on social media, was later posted on Youtube and Instagram.
It ended in his arrest.
Known as Boonk IG on social media, the 20-year-old Hill has gained a reputation for ignoring store policies while on camera — like making speeches on top of fast-food restaurant counters and taking food without paying for it.
But the May 13 incident at the Dunkin’ Donuts 18801 NW Second Ave. ended in burglary and petit theft charges for Hill, according to an arrest report.
This is an interesting set of facts,” said Hill’s lawyer Kelsey Cruz at a court hearing shared on NBC 6.
According to his arrest report, Hill entered an employee-only area before he took a doughnut tray and walked out. The employee asked for the tray back and Hill returned it.
During the court appearance, Miami-Dade Judge Hill referred Hill to a court program and got probation earlier this week.
“Try Krispy Kreme, but stay out of this Dunkin’ Donuts,” the judge joked.
Hill was sentenced to 60 days of probation after pleading not guilty.
