Jake Paul may have found himself in some trouble in Puerto Rico.
Earlier this week, Paul uploaded a video of himself and some buddies driving golf carts down the beach in Puerto Rico.

Locals were outraged at Paul’s antics considering it’s currently turtle nesting season in Puerto Rico and it’s illegal to drive a motorized vehicle down the beach.
It is Nesting season for Sea Turtles in Puerto Rico and Jake Paul is treating our beaches like a playground. These are federally protected wildlife species. This is illegal. https://t.co/efZmmqbVNt

Puerto Rico’s Dept. of Natural & Environmental Resources announced on Friday that they have launched an investigation into the Paul brothers after the video of Jake Paul riding around the beach went viral.
