These days, one clip is all it takes for you to get in (potential) trouble with the authorities. The most recent example from Bali involves a man who was filmed doing a freestyle stunt while riding his motorcycle on a street in Seminyak. He is now wanted by the police. 

“We’re still looking. We’re still searching, especially in the Seminyak area, because the video was taken around Seminyak,” Adi Sulistyo Utomo, chief of Denpasar Police’s traffic unit, told Kompas earlier today. 

The video of the man’s freestyle stunt recently went viral on social media, showing him pulling off a vertical wheelie.

Adi said authorities are concerned because the man, who is believed to be a foreigner, was posing a danger to others on the road, though it is unclear if he would be charged with a traffic law violation.
