Former gay porn star and convicted sex offender Joshua Noles (who performed as Sebastian Young in gay porn from 2006-2016) was shot and killed by police yesterday after Noles led them on a high speed chase through Flagler and St. John’s counties in Florida. Noles was shot dead after crashing into an abandoned school bus and then exchanging gunfire with deputies, a St. John’s public information officer confirmed to Str8UpGayPorn. Noles’ Dodge truck and the school bus are seen below following the shootout:

According to St. John’s Sheriff’s public information officer Chuck Mulligan, Noles initially failed to stop for neighboring Flagler County deputies after a traffic infraction, and a high speed chase—which saw Noles driving head-on into oncoming traffic, through residents’ yards, crashing through fences on private properties, and slamming into patrol cars—ensued, with Noles eventually entering St. John’s County and crashing into the school bus. After the crash, Noles exited his Dodge truck with a handgun and began shooting at deputies, who exchanged gunfire with him. Noles was pronounced dead at the scene, and thankfully, no motorists or bystanders were injured during the chase and shootout.

Here was Noles late last year posing near the Dodge truck he used during the high speed chase:

As Str8UpGayPorn reported over the last several years, Noles was a registered sex offender in the state of Florida after being convicted of possession of child porn, and while the details of what led to the car chase and shootout are still being investigated, Noles’ initial failure to stop may have been due, at least in part, to the fact that he was in possession of a handgun while on probation.

In mid-2016, Noles—who performed in dozens of gay porn scenes and movies from 2006 through 2016—was charged with raping his 5-year-old daughter and giving her an STD, possession of child porn, and threatening to murder the police detective who was investigating him. In late 2017, Noles was convicted of misdemeanor disorderly conduct for threatening to kill the detective, and he served 60 days in jail for that crime. In May of 2019, Noles took a deal and pleaded no contest to 10 of the 20 counts of child porn possession he was facing, while the charges involving his daughter were dropped.

Noles was charged and convicted of multiple felonies over the last 15 years while he concurrently worked as a gay porn star (when he wasn’t serving time in prison) for several of the biggest gay porn studios. In addition to the child porn possession and threatening to kill the detective, Noles was also arrested for assaulting his ex-wife three times, convicted of assaulting an elderly person over 65 (for which he spent nearly two years in prison), and arrested and/or convicted eight different times for drug, DUI, burglary, traffic, and battery charges.

Noles attempted to re-enter the gay porn industry following his release from prison last summer, asking several gay porn studios for work. Thankfully, those studios did not offer Noles work like they had done following his previous incarcerations, but Noles did launch an OnlyFans account and was able to receive support from some fans, many of whom (hopefully) weren’t aware of his history. Noles was 37 years old.
