Island Boy’s Arrest for Reckless Driving Leads to Accusations of Impersonation

Franky Venegas, a member of the Island Boys, assumed the identity of his twin brother Alex when he was apprehended in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in May for his involvement in reckless driving.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, law enforcement reported that Kodiyakredd, also known as 22-year-old Venegas, was observed driving a yellow Corvette Stingray at high speeds on May 24.

According to the outlet, officers reported seeing Venegas drive quickly into a parking lot and were informed that his vehicle, as well as the occupants of a nearby gray vehicle, were allegedly “armed with guns.”

According to authorities, they activated their emergency lights and swiftly approached Venegas, who claimed to be his brother Alex. However, after examining his state ID and conducting a background check, they discovered that he had been lying about his identity.
