As i have heard the owner of Gotway America/Brad Webster is dead! Sorry to hear that!

Before someone else mentions that:

There is a facebook post with a news report bringing his dead together with a police raid because of a suspected drug kitchen!

 

Some people are saying he was set up!  RIP Brad!  My condolences to his family!

I never did business with Gotway America but it was always nice to know there was another (allegedly) reliable retailer out there. Found an interesting discussion on a local forum regarding the circumstances surrounding his death by police shootout.

EDIT: Looks like the thread I linked to doesn't exist anymore. Guess it was too hot for their forum to handle.

Seems like drugs and Gotway electric unicycles tend to mix for some strange reason.  Shooting at police just trying to do their jobs?  Yeah, that's not going to end well.

There was that other pair of drug people on the forums way back.  The Breaking Bad Crew I'll refer to them as.  :rolleyes:  I wonder what ever happened to them.

If you are a felon you DO NOT have the right to own a firearm. He gave away those rights when he was convicted of manufacturing meth in Arkansas and murder 2 people (which he got away with so not sure why he hates the laws, that allowed him to get away with murder). That is the law, which he was breaking. A warrant does not mean you are guilty, what it means is that they (law enforcement agency) went to a court of law and that court agreed with the police there was enough evidence and reason to search. I simply said IF he was such an upstanding citizen who had nothing to hide... why didn't he allow them to search? Oh that's right... HE WAS A FELON BREAKING THE LAW and he was too weak to go back to prison.

Wait what?! I literally have been messaging him on Facebook about shipping my wheel to him 2 days ago! Is this true because I may never receive it back then?! 

It's certainly true. Maybe Gotway America is still functioning - I don't know if it was a one man operation.

I don't know the guy, but judging from the news articles, it doesn't sound like he was a good person. His list of crimes makes him sound like a violent thug. Then he shot at police? No sympathy here.

It's hard to understand.  I bought a Gotway Tesla from him and had the best possible customer service... Everytime I needed something, he was always very helpful...

Doesn't mean a thing. Serial killers can also be the nicest neighbours you ever had.

The cops thought the building was booby trapped, because there were explosions in the fire. I wonder if it was just the lithium ion batteries of his EUCs. As an EUC dealer, he probably had at least 10 of them in there, including his own personal wheels. Maybe 15-20 EUCs in there.

Brad was a stand up guy with a gianr heart especially for EUC'rs. He really enjoyed helping people while not being afraid to stand up for himself. Respect.  I believe he was the most underrated contributor to EUC growth by sponsoring people to literally just promote euc and not himself. 

We have been working together on building our new company up until the day he passed away. Picture is a cartoon filter of his younger days rescuing animals. His soul was full and by helping animals or other people, this is the only way to manage the overflow. Really though, he was like the best friend you always needed and not just wanted. 

The news is exaggerated lies feathering the limit on what is acceptable. No violent history or drug manufacturing (grew in 2006/dumb Arkansas laws which is perfectly legal to do exact same now). My opinion is cops set it up for him to react by kicking in his door 6 a.m. with a flash bang. Not to conduct a search on suspicion but to instigate. I stayed with him 4 days in April and had a pleasant time. Let me borrow his car while boarding me up free.  My heart bleeds for justice on Brad.

His biggest hobby for electric unicycles was building batteries. He literally just bought a crazy expensive spot welder that hasnt arrived yet. 

This is my theory as well. I have pictures of many cells and battery packs all dispersed throughout the warehouse. Any bullet or flash bang in any area of warehouse is a sketchy situation.

And this Ebay Account is from Gotway America, or did it just happen that you posted in a wrong topic?

Ps.: Writing in capital letters is seen as shouting ...
