Today's guest is a life long shredder from Columbus Ohio who has recently come under fire after riding a government building in Ashland Ohio. Local media and Police have been claiming that Anthony Hitchcock, once a member of the US Navy, is a criminal after “damaging” a rail and ledge at a Ohio Department of Transpiration building. The only thing Anthony is guilty of in my opinion is having that east coast style of riding we all love.
