HOWEVER, HIGH ON LIFE GARNERED INTERNATIONAL SCORN TWO YEARS AGO WHEN GAMBLE, LYAKH AND OTHERS WERE SHOWN WALKING ON THE DELICATE BACTERIAL MAT OF THE GRAND PRISMATIC SPRING IN YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK.

THEY PLEADED GUILTY TO VIOLATIONS IN YELLOWSTONE AND DEATH VALLEY NATIONAL PARKS.

GAMBLE AND LYAKH WERE SENTENCED TO SEVEN DAYS IN JAIL, PAID THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN FINES AND RESTITUTION, WERE BANNED FROM NATIONAL PARKS FOR FIVE YEARS, AND ORDERED TO REMOVE NATIONAL PARK-RELATED VIDEOS FROM THEIR WEBSITE.
