Jake Paul's "Bird Box Challenge" Video was reportedly removed from Youtube after he drives auto bindfolded. But she may face reckless driving charges after she and a 16 year-old passenger allegedly pulled their beanies over their eyes and attempted to drive down a local highway.

While nobody was injured, it's safe to say that driving a vehicle while blindfolded is definitely the opposite of a good idea. "It really puts everybody at risk", said Travis Lyman of the Layton police.
