Speaking of showing off, it is precisely a video shared to his Instagram that’s gotten him in trouble with authorities in Puerto Rico, where he and Logan own a $10 million beachfront mansion. The two apparently went racing beach buggies on the beach, ignoring the fact that driving any motorized vehicle there during turtle nesting season is illegal.
TMZ has obtained a copy of the statement sent out on the ongoing investigation. It also has the IG video, which Jake has since taken down, along with his version of events.
The Puerto Rican Department of Natural and Environmental Resources is yet to determine where exactly the video was shot, but the mere fact that Jake has deleted the original video would indicate that he is at fault and he knows it. He’s saying this much to the same media outlet, claiming ignorance for what he did. He says there was no sign informing him that beach buggies weren’t allowed at this time (during nesting season), and that several other buggies were around as well.
Jake insists he’s a huge animal lover who would never do anything to cause harm. He’s willing to “cooperate” with authorities in the ongoing investigation, the same media outlet says.
