The story of the Letter Milton is a rather sad and unhappy story that unfolded before our eyes, and yet nothing tangible seemed to have been done. He became famous as a 7-year-old, not for reasons that are praiseworthy, but for reasons that cost his grandmother a lot of money, and if, in her own words, it had gone her way, she would have spanked him. A few years later, as a teenager, Latarian once again got on the wrong side of the law.
Although Latarian Milton might have gotten off with a warning from the police the first time and probably without a spanking from his grandmother, this time he might have to go to jail for intentionally committing a crime. Learn more about Milton below and how he became the man we know him to be today.
Latarian Milton – Bio, Age
The Latvian Milton is a black American born on August 30, 2000, in Palm Beach, Florida, in the United States of America. He was born to Sheneequa (mother), who gave birth to him at the age of nearly 16 years. The only description and identity found of her are that she is a chain smoker. There was no mention of who Latarian’s father is or if he has any siblings. His other known family member is Vikkita Stratford, his grandmother, with whom he spent most of his young life in Palm Beach, Florida.
Latarian graduated from middle school in Palm Beach in 2015, at a time when it seemed that someone had already brought him to his senses, and he was on the right track. He was excited to be on the soccer team at his school and was looking forward to becoming a professional soccer player. If that didn’t work out, Latarian had a second plan to join the U.S. Navy, where he would focus on engineering and technology.
Before that time, however, Latarian Milton had so many problems with himself and naturally returned to his old habits. He became famous when he took his grandmother’s Dodge Durango for a spin down the street in April 2008 after he was upset about his mother not allowing his friends to come into her house to watch cartoons with him. Milton said his mother asked him to leave the house and that was the reason for his actions. Before he took off, he was accompanied by a friend, another 7-year-old who was smoking a cigarette and with whom he really wanted to do “Hoodrat things”.
Milton dashed into the street with the Dodge Durango, and since he was only 8 years old, it was a rough ride. He ran over two mailboxes, hit two parked cars in a Costco parking lot, while two other moving cars near Wal-Mart on Congress Avenue were not spared his crazy ride. When the drive ended, he was stuck in a field along Investment Lane and Consumer Drive. After that, sheriff deputies from Palm Beach County showed up, having been alerted by a road user who saw the boy behind the wheel.
The West Palm Beach New station WPBF visited his home and interviewed him the day after the incident, and then he made his infamous statement, “It’s fun to do bad things,” which spread when the WPBF uploaded the video to YouTube.
Two weeks after the incident, on May 12, 2008, Latarian attacked his grandmother while they were at Wal-Mart for not buying him chicken wings, whereupon he was taken to a mental evaluation.
Body Measurements – Height, Weight
The Latarian Milton stands in his current age at a height of 1.65 m or 1.5 m. He weighs about 73kg or 154lbs. His chest measures 37 inches, his waist is 36 inches and his hips are 36 inches. Latarian’s biceps are 14.5 inches and he wears a US shoe size of 7.
Where is He Now?
In 2018, Latvian Milton once again got on the wrong side of the law, seriously jeopardizing his hopes of becoming a professional footballer or a member of the U.S. Navy.
This time he was arrested for a more serious offense: armed robbery and car theft. On a weekend in May 2017, the Latvian Milton and 4 other people, including a girl, were picked up by a Lyft driver whom Milton had contacted earlier. The driver took them to the 1500 block of Windorah Way in West Palm Beach, where the girl got off. The other occupants then told the driver to take her to another location, which he refused. One of the 4 boys pulled a handgun and hit the back of the driver’s head. He then got out of the car and was robbed of his wallet and jacket. While this was happening, Latarian, who was in the front seat, got out and sat in the driver’s seat, whereupon he raced away quickly.
The Lyft driver informed the police of the robbery and also gave a phone number where he was first contacted for pickup. With this phone number, Milton was easily located and arrested. After his arrest, he admitted to being involved in the crime as a getaway driver. He was charged in court and was remanded in juvenile detention until his next hearing. Latarian’s case looked pretty bad and the odds were against him.
The last information we could find about him dates back to 2018 and says that he was still in prison waiting for his conviction. With his crime, he had the chance of 15 years in prison or even life imprisonment.
