After lengthy investigations, Mr. Riggs performance as a con-man is extensive. As a tax evader, he is causing all of us to pay more than our fair share. He has also been convicted of defrauding investors, and was permanently enjoined by the SEC not to violate securities law. Additionally, one of the videos of the accident of “Wild Child” shows clearly (w’audio), that he caused or at least contributed to the death of 2 pilots (Fregley & Hoss) and continued to video the resultant fireball and death scene. What a film maker. All of the evidence will come forward, and this piece of human garbage will eventually be unable to hurt anyone again. Unfortunately, he will probably kill somebody’s kid when his aircraft slams into a school. But then it will be the fault of someone else in the government that failed to take action. BTW, see the article in the LA Times, 11/8/2009 on pages A-43 & A-50 (California Section) and don’t forget to watch the video.

It says the lawyer is Epic’s, not Bass’s, dummy. Read the details. If I’m being accused a lawyer would be prudent anyway. And google the ex-con making the accusation “David Riggs” and “Tampa Bay Business Journal” and “videotape”. The accuser is a twice-convicted con artist.

Police, Court and Public records show that David Glen Riggs has had more run-ins with the law than Al Capone.
On this Menace-To-Society’s Menue of Meyhem:
Robbery, Credit Card Theft, Credit Card Fraud, Insurance Fraud, Identity Theft, Domestic Violence (battery upon a woman), Securities Fraud, Bank Fraud, Wire Fraud, Passport Fraud, Illegal Smuggling, Drug Running, Murder Plotting, Indecent Exposure, dozens upon dozens of Civil Lawsuits, Unpaid Taxes, Unpaid Bills, Attempted Aircraft Theft, Flight From Prosecution and his latest… Dangerous & Reckless Flying. This lastest bone-headed stunt, getting Riggs incarcerated for at least the fourth time in his colorful crimminal career, already having done multiple stints and many years behind bars in such exotic places as, Hong Kong, Texas and Kansas.

From what I’ve heard about this Riggs, those on or near the Pier during this lapse of judgement are lucky to be alive. This guy is a real clown in the air, talk about the ‘Wrong Stuff’!

Good article – needs to get universal circulation; preferably with a picture or two. Guys like Riggs (I’m sure he uses alias’ in his scams) need to get global exposure to inform the public of his antics. For all we know he’s currently working his next scam in China – probably around some aviation program or event.
Stay on him Brian – its articles like yours that eventually smokes out guys like Riggs – and he’s a bad one!

This guy is the ultimate piece of garbage who plays the ‘system’ like the joke that it is. He is a sociopathic drug abusing thief who needs to be snuffed from society like cancer…..which he faked he had! His Hitler mustache reveals his inner self and he even staged his own ‘death’ once…..man, we could only hope.
I’m hoping the judge in California has the guts to do what is right and put this guy away for the maximum, then his house of cards will fall down. And everyone will be better off…..except his cell mate…guard your gold caps at night whoever you are!

Kudos to Brian for having the courage to shine a bright light on this cock-a-roach. So lets see if I’ve peeped his MO – starts a scam in Kansas City get exposed there, goes to Tampa – same thing, goes to Atlanta – same thing, then he flees the US and tries different scams in Africa, Australia, Hong Kong where he’s sent to prison – claims to be sexually violated (how sweet) and is eventually sent home to Leavenworth – prison that is! And now he’s working his cons in Hollywood scamming millions of dollars from unsuspecting targets. Keep the light on the cockroach Brian, lets hope this article gets national coverage and exposes his antics and criminal behavior and ultimately puts him behind bars for a long time. The world would be a better place with Riggs behind bars and I mean prison bars!

Very well written article and enjoyed the headline too. Looks like this life long miscreant is finally getting exposed for the career criminal that is David G Riggs. How has he been allowed to continue to pray on people, since according to this article, he’s been conning people since 1980! Sounds like they need to put this con artist behind bars and throw away the key, once and for all.

Well – is anyone who really knows Riggs surprised he’s is facing “incarceration” AGAIN. He is what he is – a full time criminal/loser. The LA Times article refers to him as a “pilot and movie producer”….I wonder what he’s produced other than embezzlement and chaos. He’s always been a lying, cheating, bedwetter – Hollywood want-a-bee. Now let’s hope his latest stunt nets him some intimate “Bubba” time. For real amusement just do a Google search on David G Riggs – Holy Moly!
