A Las Vegas man was arrested on a federal charge Tuesday after he allegedly “goaded” a homeless man into performing a deadly stunt for his Facebook Live in exchange for $6 last month, according to police.
Keonte Jones, 28, is accused of recording another man — 55-year-old Larry Coner – performing various stunts on June 20. Coner had approached Jones and asked him for money, according to a press release from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department on Wednesday.
The victim attempted the maneuver twice, but only did cartwheels. He tried one more time, this time launching toward his back, but he didn’t land on his feet. He fell with an audible thud, apparently head first. The man identified as Jones laughed. The victim did not get up.\
