Las Vegas Thug Gloats about Lack of Justice after Killing Retired Police Chief: ‘I’ll Be Out in 30 days, I’ll Bet You’

A Las Vegas thug gloated to cops that he would be back on the streets “in 30 days” after he was arrested for intentionally striking and killing a retired police chief.

Jesus Ayala, who was 17 at the time, mocked the lack of justice in the Nevada city by taunting the arresting police officers that he would just get a “slap on the wrist” for his crime after he was taken into custody.

Ayala, now 18, who appeared to show no remorse while being taken into custody, faces 18 counts, including murder.

He already has a lengthy criminal history in the juvenile system.

According to police recordings, Ayala made comments to officers after he was taken into custody:

“You think this juvenile [expletive] is gonna do some [expletive]?

“I’ll be out in 30 days, I’ll bet you.”

“It’s just ah, [expletive] ah, hit-and-run — slap on the wrist.”

However, Ayala’s gloating had inadvertently given away his involvement in the crime.

Officers had not yet mentioned a hit-and-run to Ayala at that point in their conversation with him, sources said.

They said he was being booked for a warrant and obstructing a peace officer.

Ayala’s comments were caught on a police body camera.

Even more disturbingly, police found evidence that Ayala had filmed the moment the car intentionally struck 64-year-old Andy Probst.

Police obtained Ayala’s cell phone and found a video of Probst being fatally struck, along with a short clip showing another bicyclist being struck by a Kia Soul.

The video had been recorded by Ayala, indicating that he was the passenger.

In the video, the sound of a car horn is heard, along with a voice saying “bump him” repeatedly.

A cyclist riding on the far right side of the street can be seen wearing an orange shirt.

Both suspects are heard laughing, along with the sound of the engine accelerating.

That victim, a 72-year-old man, survived.

Homicide detectives received information that the passenger in the crash that killed Probst, identified by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officials as Jzamir Keys, 16, was in a fight on September 14.

Video of that incident was recorded and police said that his white tennis shoes matched the video from the August 14 crime spree.

Keys recorded video as Probst was apparently intentionally struck and killed on August 14.

The collision followed an alleged crime spree that included at least three car thefts and three hit-and-runs, police revealed.

In the video, the thugs are seen apparently striking another car on the road.

The stolen car that Ayala and Keys allegedly used to murder Probst was found ditched near Craig Road and Jones Boulevard.

The location is fewer than 10 minutes from the crash site, sources told the 8 News Now Investigators.

The stolen vehicle was located with blood on its windshield, sources said.

In the hours after Probst’s death, the teenagers allegedly stole two more cars in the area of Lake Mead Boulevard and Torrey Pines Drive, sources said.

About an hour after allegedly hitting and killing Probst, the teenagers took the two stolen cars and crashed them into each other near a shopping plaza at Lake Mead and Rainbow Boulevards, sources said.

Keys faces three charges, including murder.

On Thursday, both teens appeared in adult court for the first time.

David Westbrook, a Clark County public defender, represented Ayala.

Keys is expected to be appointed a public defender.

They are next due in court on September 26, when the issue of bail is likely to be addressed.

Steve Wolfson, Clark County District Attorney, said that the teen suspects should remain in custody.

“The determination of whether somebody should remain in custody is based upon whether they’re a flight risk or a danger to the community,” Wolfson said.

“I believe they’re potentially both.

“They have certainly proved that they are dangerous.”

As of Thursday, the teenagers are being held in the Clark County Detention Center in Downtown Las Vegas.

In Nevada, an individual facing a murder charge who is 16 or 17 years old is automatically moved from the juvenile system to the adult criminal justice system.

As the 8 News Now Investigators reported in August, police did not have enough evidence in the weeks after the crash to charge Ayala with murder since the video did not surface for two weeks.
