YouTuber Alex Choi arrested for shooting fireworks at Lambo from helicopter - Autoblog

Popular YouTuber Alex Choi arrested for illegal helicopter stunt involving fireworks shot at Lamborghini, facing up to 10 years in prison.

YouTube personalities are known for pushing the boundaries to create engaging content, but sometimes they cross the line into illegal territory. Alex Choi, a popular social media influencer, recently faced the consequences of his actions when he was arrested for a dangerous stunt involving a helicopter and a Lamborghini.

The 24-year-old content creator is facing serious charges for his role in a video where fireworks were shot at the luxury car from a helicopter. The charges include causing the placement of an explosive device on an aircraft, a federal offense that could result in up to 10 years in prison if convicted. The lack of proper permits for filming and carrying fireworks in a helicopter only added to Choi's legal troubles.

In the now-deleted video, Choi can be seen driving the Lamborghini while fireworks are launched at the vehicle from above. Despite attempts to distance himself from the incident, his involvement as the director of the shoot is evident. While it is unclear if others involved will face charges, the helicopter pilot had their license revoked by the FAA for their role in the dangerous stunt.

This is not the first time Choi has courted controversy with his automotive antics. In a separate incident, he organized a Tesla meetup that resulted in a reckless jump of a Model S, causing damage to a parked car. The video of the incident, which also allegedly involved passengers and a cat in the Tesla, was shared on Choi's YouTube channel.

Known for his involvement in high-speed events and drag races, Choi has a reputation for pushing the limits with expensive cars for the sake of views. However, the recent incident has raised questions about the risks he is willing to take for content. As he navigates the legal repercussions of his actions, Choi may need to reconsider the potential consequences of his stunts in the future.
