Controversies & Scandals
On Halloween night 2015, Vitar, along with another off-duty fireman, Eric Carpenter, and a third man, Thomas Molnar, allegedly beat up 22-year-old Samuel Chang for “handing out candies to children”. They broke Chang’s jaw and left him in a coma with severe brain damage while accusing him of being a pedophile.
In December, both Vitar and Molnar were charged with one count of ‘assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury’ while Carpenter faced ‘Personally inflicting great bodily injury on the victim’ charges. Though initially, Vitar was facing a possible four-year sentence, he managed to escape imprisonment and instead had to pay US$ 2,000 to Chang and was suspended from work for six months without pay.
