In September 2018, Alex narrowly missed a motorcyclist while attempting to perform a doughnut on Mulholland Highway.
As the video shows, Alex, for some reason, decided to drift across a two-lane road but failed to notice that a motorcycle was coming. Luckily, the two narrowly missed each other and everyone was fine.
He immediately pulled over following the near-miss, only to receive a severe tongue-lashing from a woman (she is believed to be the rider’s girlfriend) who witnessed the whole thing.
He had the decency and good sense to stick around and to apologize profusely to her and to the rider, too. Choi said that the motorcycle was in his blind spot.
The incident was uploaded to Youtube where Alex was criticized by the motorcycle community.
In December 2018, Alex was arrested in Beverly Hills, California for refusing to comply with a police officer.
This arrest doesn’t seem to be slowing him down as he pointed out that he “still has his driver’s license” and his M2, referring to his modified BMW M2 (fact – The BMW M2 is the only 2 Series Coupe available with a dual-clutch transmission) that he can be seen burning out in on a previous post.
In April 2019, his trip to Coachella was cut a bit short and Alex had to return to LA since his Huracan started to lose oil.
