This time the e-scooter recorded the video. Yes, there are now scooters that have cameras built into them at ZAPP Rideshare Scooters based in Tempe, Arizona 

According to Tempe police officials, Trey Fisk, 28, was arrested and charged with a class 5 felony for stealing scooters.

ZAPP Rideshare CEO Frank Scozzafava said that Fisk told him that he was using the batteries from the scooters to charge vape pens and cell phones and that he was sorry for damaging his scooters 

This the first time an electric scooter has recorded a crime and an arrest was made.

ZAPP says it has proprietary software allowing the scooters and bikes the ability to record 24/7 along with GPS tracking to record any crime if it happens in front of a parked scooter.
