He continued selling drugs after relocating to Miami, Florida and was eventually arrested in 2011 for possession of marijuana, cocaine, and a controlled substance, as well as illegal drug trafficking.
The charges were dismissed for lack of a search warrant, after which he moved to Los Angeles, planning to buy marijuana in bulk and mail it back to New York City.

Dobrik was illegally operating an excavator in a shallow lake while Wittek swung from a rope attached to the end of the excavator’s arm; when the excavator stopped, Wittek collided with the arm and fell.
His skull was fractured in nine places, his left eye socket was fractured, his hip and foot were broken, and ligaments in his leg were torn. Wittek continued to regularly film his Jeff’s Barbershop series without addressing the injuries.
The docuseries Don’t Try This at Home was released in April 2021 after nearly ten months of speculation from the public, and comprised five episodes in which Wittek explained the circumstances surrounding the injury, described life in recovery from a near-fatal accident, and also spoke about how the incident affected his relationship with Dobrik.
After releasing the first episode, Wittek pivoted to Patreon because the footage of his injuries was deemed too graphic for YouTube. His Patreon account gained 37,000 followers in the first 10 days, making him one of the most-followed creators on that platform and the highest-paid creator of 18+ content on the platform.
