The man behind one of the most well-known anti-Tesla Twitter accounts, @skabooshka, was issued a temporary restraining order then allegedly trying to cause an accident during demonstration of Navigate Model 3 test on Autopilot. The mentioned TSLAQ member reportedly caused so no thought that his vehicle ended up triggering Model 3's crash removal Model.
The temporary ban on the law was granted by the Alameda County Superior Court in CA on Friday, though still unknown whether the restraining order was delivered. By filing it, Tesla claimed that California resident Randeep Hothi, the alleged person behind the TSLAQ @skabooshka account on Twitter had three employees "being, causing, and threatening" driving Model 3 at Bay Place. The manufacturer of the electric car said it was not the first time a short-term action against the company, as he also reported that a member of Tesla's security personnel was injured when he was caught in a company property offense .
Tesla explained its request for a restraining order as follows (credit to Twitter user Nafnlaus for providing screenshots of documents). The following are excerpts from the order of restraining Tesla.
Historically violations of Tesla's facilities, it is illegal to take photos and videos to post to his Twitter account, and other misconduct, as explained in the Leslie Declaration. However, over the past few months, the Respondent's behavior has increased and resulted in violent and intimidate confrontations with Tesla employees.
In a February 201
More recently, on April 16, 2019, the Respondent was torn, tackled, and threatened (three employees of Tesla) who were driving the highway on a Model vehicle owner Tesla of plates and with mounting camera equipment. In particular, Respondents rejected these employees on the public highway for about 35 minutes, alternately driving ahead, alongside, and behind them, and flying in danger near the vehicle . Response near the side of Tesla leaves the car's side-collision safety feature triggered to make an emergency maneuver to prevent collision.
Employees had no prior knowledge of Tesla's Respondent's engagements, but it showed that the Respondent was trying to interrupt their trip, and each feared the conduct of the Respondent's road will cause collision and eliminate them. The fear for his safety and for the safety of other passengers in Model 3 (a Tesla employee) was called the San Francisco Police Department at that time. However, since no officer in the area, (the Tesla employee) eventually did not request that an officer be sent to their location.
On April 22, 2019, Tesla will host an event at the headquarters at 3500 Deer Creek Road, Palo Alto, where employees of Tesla show functionality of vehicles in vehicles made on nearby roads. The respondent expressed interest in this event on Twitter, and his Twitter followers urge him to try and interfere with these drives. The respondent is a vocal Tesla detractor, who is said to be a Tesla short-seller, and many tweet about his desire to see Tesla (and its Autopilot technology) failed. To ensure the safety of Tesla employees and the public, a temporary protection is required, on April 22,2019, for any Tesla employee who drives a Tesla vehicle with factory plates within 5 miles of the principal Tesla office at 3500 Deer Creek Road, Palo Alto, California.
It should be noted that the skabooshka actions mentioned by Tesla in its restraining order interfere with some suggestions suggested by the TSLAQ community when the recorded bear posted pictures of Model 3 of the test car company on Twitter. These suggestions include tearing in front of Tesla test vehicles, as well as the deliberate transfer of electric vehicle roads to ensure that company demonstrations are real. The other Tesla bear also joked that it was funny if Model 3 crashes.
Due to his actions, the mentioned Tesla bear must be asked to stay at least 100 yards away from the Fremont factory or to the employees named at the restraining order of Tesla. He also needs to stay 10 yards away from any vehicle in Tesla with factory plates within a five-mile factory. The restraining order is effective until May 7, when a hearing is scheduled.
Tesla critics of the Tesla seem to be focusing on a particular focus on Tesla's upcoming Autonomy Investor Day on April 22, which the electric car maker expects to offer Investors are a deep dive in his entire self-driving initiatives, including custom Hardware 3 computers. Vehicle test rides with unreleased features of Autopilot and the Whole Self-Driving suite are also expected to be held at the event.
Tesla or Hothi did not respond to requests for comment on media publications such as The Verge although the @skabooshka Twitter account was boldly announced on Saturday post "I'm not going to rest, this is my promise, Tesla is zero. @elonmusk is going to jail." Elon Musk, for his part, tweeted on Twitter that the actions mentioned by Tesla bear were something he had not seen before .
