WA man who posted videos of stolen guns sentenced

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A 23-year-old man who videotaped himself with stolen guns and then posted videos on YouTube has been sentenced to four years in prison.

The Columbian reports ( http://bit.ly/QKVX9k) that Ronnie Michael Wynn admitted to firing a pistol out a car in a populated neighborhood. He was sentenced Thursday.

Wynn, who calls himself "Ron Gotti," had outstanding warrants when he was arrested July 16 after he crashed a stolen car. Vancouver police officers then found videos on Wynn's Facebook page and on YouTube, which led to the gun charges.

Wynn says he's a Norteno gang member and a heroin addict.

Wynn pleaded guilty to discharging a firearm, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of a stolen firearm, trafficking stolen property and forgery.
