A Southern California couple faces charges after authorities say they had been posting dashcam videos of traffic crashes and road rages, including with their child in the car, to YouTube in a dangerous insurance fraud scam.

Christopher Phelps and his wife, Kimberly, both 40, were arrested Wednesday in Southern California, the state’s Department of Insurance said in a statement. They face charges of insurance fraud, assault with a deadly weapon and child endangerment.
