The video, filmed on June 27, 2023, at the El Mirage Dry Lakebed, showed Choi driving the Lamborghini and triggering the fireworks. He also appeared next to the helicopter, holding a firework, and claimed to have directed the shoot.

The stunt was allegedly coordinated without a permit, and Choi discussed purchasing illegal fireworks in Nevada. The Federal Aviation Administration revoked the helicopter pilot’s license, and Choi’s management company has been contacted for comment.

Choi’s YouTube channel boasts over 900,000 subscribers, and his arraignment is expected in the coming weeks. The DOJ has not commented on potential additional charges. This incident highlights the dangers of reckless stunts and the consequences of pushing legal boundaries for entertainment value.

Choi’s fate serves as a warning to content creators and thrill-seekers alike, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing safety and adhering to regulations.

As the case expose, the YouTube community and fans await the outcome, hoping for a resolution that balances creativity with responsibility.
