Man confronts panhandler driving new truck, video goes viral
VANCOUVER, Wash. (KOIN) — A Vancouver man confronted a known panhandler recently near NE Andresen Road and NE Fourth Plain Boulevard, after he saw the panhandler get into a newer Toyota pickup truck.
Jimmy Severs works as a tattoo artist right across the street from where the panhandler sits. Severs said he became outraged when he saw the man get into the truck.
“Just to see somebody sitting out with a 2014, 2015 Toyota Tacoma holding a sign — just imagine how much money that guy has made in the months of sitting there, that I’ve personally seen him sitting there,” Severs said.
Severs posted his video to Facebook where it’s been shared 1,400 times and has more than 67,000 views.
