WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (KABC) -- YouTube star Calum McSwiggan has been charged in connection with an incident in West Hollywood, where he claimed he was attacked outside a gay nightclub in June.
Prosecutors on Thursday charged McSwiggan with one felony count of vandalism exceeding $400. He had previously been charged with one misdemeanor count of filing a false report to a peace officer related to the same case.
McSwiggan, who is known for his LGBT YouTube channel, says he was brutally assaulted by three men after leaving The Abbey on June 27.
Sheriff's deputies responded to the scene after McSwiggan called 911. However, deputies could not substantiate the assault claim, saying they could not find any visible injuries on McSwiggan.
Moments later, deputies arrested the 26-year-old for allegedly vandalizing a nearby car. According to the felony complaint from the district attorney's office, McSwiggan allegedly damaged the car mirror and bumper.
The complaint also alleges that McSwiggan falsely reported to authorities that he had been beaten by the vehicle's driver and two other men.
Following his arrest, McSwiggan was booked and placed in a cell alone at the West Hollywood station, where authorities say they saw him injuring himself with the handle and receiver of a payphone inside the cell.
He was taken to a hospital for treatment. McSwiggan later posted a photo of himself on Instagram, saying it was the worst night of his life.

This is ridiculous.
West Hollywood is gay. Has been gay forever. The people who live there are mostly gay.
Los Angeles is not about people getting up in arms anout gayness.
It just isn’t.
What in the world was this guy thinking?
attention seeking borderline personality disorder
He’s a “YouTube star”, i.e, he doesn’t want a real job. This was for publicity/self enrichment. Glad he was caught.
I live right around the corner from the Abbey. That place is always busy, and it’s the center of the gay hurricane that is Weho. Unless he somehow ran afoul of the Mexicans that were delivering the tequila, there is no way that would happen there. Finding three violent homophobes outside the Abbey is about as likely as finding three staunch conservative men in the women’s bathroom of the Sociology department of Cornell University in Ithaca.
You paint a great picture with words in that last sentence!
Being gay just isn’t special enough anymore. You need to be a victim to stand out.
he’s such a big star that I’ve never heard of....
I thought of you upon reading the replied-to post, BLL. LOL!
Lol. City of Evil, West Coast?
Good to get your feedback.
I lived in Los Angeles for a long time. You just don’t get people upset about that there.
They just don’t really care.
The ones who do seem to be the ‘victim’ trolls.
Like this guy.
