YouTube star FaZe Banks claims he was robbed of his $200,000 Richard Mille watch at a Super Bowl party held Friday at Scottsdale Hangar One in Arizona.
FaZe claimed his watch fell off as he was walking through a crowd and surveillance cameras captured the moment he picked it up and placed it in one of his pockets, according to TMZ. Shortly after he tucked it away in his pocket, someone apparently managed to reach in and swipe the luxury watch.
