Teens Charged in Fatal Hit-and-Run Mock Victim’s Family in Court | WATCH

*The two Las Vegas teens accused of fatally running over a retired police chief last month laughed and flipped off the victim’s family in court during a hearing this week.

We reported previously that the troubled teens posted a disturbing video online showing them intentionally crashing their vehicle into 64-year-old Andreas Probst while he was riding his bike.

The New York Post notes that 18-year-old Jesus Ayala and Jzamir Keys, his 16-year-old passenger, were the teens involved in the fatality. Ayala is accused of driving a stolen Hyundai Elantra on Aug. 14 and plowing into Probst. He was initially charged with hit-and-run. But after Probst died at the hospital, the charges were upgraded to include murder, TMZ reports. 

Ayala was arrested hours after the fatality occurred. While in police custody, the teen bragged about not being behind bars for too long.

“You think this juvenile [expletive] is gonna do some [expletive]? I’ll be out in 30 days, I’ll bet you,” Ayala told the authorities, according to KLAS-TV. “It’s just ah, [expletive] ah, hit-and-run — slap on the wrist.”

Keys allegedly recorded the video of the hit-and-run while he and Alaya laughingly said, “Hit his ass.”  

The teens charged with murder and are being tried as adults, the Post reports.

During a hearing this week in Clark County court, the pair laughed and appeared to mock the victim’s family. 

Probst’s family said Ayala and Keys  “had no remorse.”

“How can you sit there after taking a man’s life, and act like such an entitled p—k?” Taylor Probst, Andreas’ 27-year-old daughter, told reporters outside the courthouse, per the Post.

“They really had no remorse, that this is just a game to them.”

“They were just trying to mad-dog us and intimidate us, which didn’t work,” Taylor Probst added.
