DETROIT (WXYZ) — Devin Cronk, who pleaded guilty to Disturbing the Peace for stunt driving on I-94 back in December, was back before Judge Kenneth King Thursday morning.

While out on bond, Cronk was reportedly seen driving recklessly again, this time on Super Bowl Sunday; Cronk's licensed is suspended.

“I never witnessed such disrespect, callousness, and stupidity in my life," Judge King said in court Thursday.

Cronk was reportedly seen driving with a group of known stunt drivers in Detroit, who often post their dangerous maneuvers on social media, like they did during the I-94 stunt.

Cronk's attorney said in court that he misunderstood when his license suspension actually took effect.

Cronk also spoke in court; he told Judge King he's been struggling, is facing additional legal trouble, and recently lost his main source of income. He said Sunday was his only day off.

“I wasn’t trying to disrespect or make anyone look like a fool out of this," he told Judge King. "I’ve definitely been going down hill in life.”

Judge King wanted an explanation for Cronk's recent behavior.

“This is serious stuff. Because you have police officers who are expending their limited resources chasing you and your friends down, breaking up this reckless actions that you’re taking on the freeways. This time they even had helicopters out there," Judge King said. “I thought you had learned a lesson from this.”

“I realize I’ve been doing things that I don’t think twice about. I know that's no excuse for anything I've done," Cronk said.

Judge King granted Cronk $5,000 bond. In the meantime, he won't have a license and will have to wear a tether. Cronk is set to be sentenced February 27 for Disturbing the Peace on I-94.
