Reps for Choi at his management firm, Underscore Talent, did not respond to a request for comment Friday.

Choi’s YouTube channel, which touts videos of “the greatest car shenanigans,” has 924,000 subscribers. The video over which federal authorities arrested him, “Destroying a Lamborghini With Fireworks,” is no longer available on YouTube.

According to an affidavit filed with the complaint, Choi posted the “Destroying a Lamborghini with Fireworks” video to his channel on July 4, 2023. In the video, Choi allegedly presses a “fire missiles” button while two women are in a helicopter, shooting fireworks at a speeding Lamborghini. Law enforcement officials believe the video was shot on the El Mirage Dry Lakebed in San Bernardino County, per the U.S. attorney’s office.
