LA teenager arrested after stealing from Paul Walker wreck

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Dec 6, 2013

It is not unusual to want something to remember a loved one by after they have passed away. However, you probably shouldn't steal it. Especially if it is someone famous and you don't actually know the person.

A Los Angeles teenager is in hot water after stealing a piece of the Porsche that "Fast & Furious" actor Paul Walker died in.

It happened as the wrecked car was being towed away from the scene of the crash on Saturday.

According to Fox News, 18-year-old Jameson Witty took a roof panel from the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. A photo of the stolen piece can be seen on TMZ.com.

Witty was arrested later by police at his home. A 25-year-old man who was also involved is expected to turn himself in.
