Scandalous fireworks: YouTuber charged for shooting at Lamborghini from a helicopter

American vlogger Alex Choi faces federal charges after posting a video on YouTube of two women shooting fireworks from a helicopter aimed at a Lamborghini. The blogger with almost 1 million subscribers usually posts videos about cars.

In June 2023, Choi hired helicopter pilots and drone operators to film a “crazy, violent fireworks show” where two women can be seen shooting pyrotechnics at a Lamborghini from a helicopter.

On June 4, 2024, a criminal case was opened against Alex Choi, federal charges were filed, and an arrest warrant was issued for “placing an explosive or incendiary device on an aircraft.” Although he did not personally film the fireworks, the complaint about the incident states that there are probable cause to believe that Choi committed a crime, as he admitted several times in the video that he was the mastermind behind the filming.

Based on tire tracks from the drifting Lamborghini, investigators determined that the video was shot on a section of dry Lake El Mirage in California, which is considered federal property. The FAA (US Federal Aviation Administration) revoked the helicopter pilot’s license because the height at which he was flying and the fireworks posed a danger.
