By no means am I condoning what he did but unless his face was shown in the video (I didn't bother to look) and they knew exactly where they were on their Cannonball Run, it would seem that a good lawyer could cast enough doubt to reduce the charges. Again, I didn't see the vid so they could be even dumber than I'm giving credit.

It shows his face in the video and plenty of traffic/exit signs. But, even if it didn't, I think you'd have an immensely hard time getting those charges reduced. If he wanted to fight it in court, there are a half dozen witnesses in the video and it was posted on Facebook (maybe even his). I doubt they're all willing to perjure themselves to maybe get this guy off with a "I know that looks like my car, sounds like me, has all my friends in it, and was posted to my (or their) Facebook, but I swear it wasn't me" defense.

It's a beyond a reasonable doubt, not beyond any doubt.

But, I wager they're dumber than you're giving them credit.
