AN American man in jail after being arrested for allegedly crashing a stolen car is in more trouble after a video of him firing a stolen gun out of a car as he drove around suburban streets was found on his Facebook page.

Police in Vancouver, Washington, found a YouTube video of Ronnie Wynn, who calls himself  "Ron Gotti,” on his Facebook page that was filmed by a passenger.

The footage shows Wynn driving his vehicle while holding a pistol.

Later in the video, Wynn points the gun out the window and appears to fire a random shot.

The video was found after Wynn was arrested by Vancouver police in July after crashing an allegedly stolen car, The Columbian reports.

Police arrested him on suspicion of being in possession of a stolen vehicle and several outstanding court warrants, including second-degree possession of stolen property, driving while  suspended, making false statements and hit-and-run, property damage.

While in jail, Wynn was also accused of  burglary, second-degree theft, two counts of theft of a firearm, three counts of trafficking stolen property, forgery, second-degree identity theft, financial fraud and three counts of unlawful possession of a firearm in connection with an unrelated case.

According to court documents, Wynn unlawfully entered his uncle's home through a doggie door and stole a Ruger pistol, an assault rife, an Airsoft HK assault rifle replica, a wristwatch and bank cheques.

Police found a video on Wynn's Facebook page that showed the man in the front seat with a handgun on the floor between his feet. In the video he said he got the handgun after selling his uncle's firearms, police said.

Another video was found on YouTube that police say shows Wynn in possession of his uncle's Ruger and Airsoft rifle. During the video Wynn can be seen holding a gun while driving a Chevrolet sedan. At one point he appears to shoot the gun out the window.
