Kosenko posted two videos to social media showing him riding a motorcycle off a jetty at the Tanah Ampo port last week.

He, his female passenger and the motorcycle plunge into the ocean.

According to local reports, police are investigating the incident as a potential breach of laws against waste dumping into the environment.

Breaches of the law reportedly carry a maximum of three years in prison.

Responding to the criticism, Kosenko claimed he retrieved the bike 30 minutes after the stunt and gave it to locals.

He also claimed he meant no disrespect to the Balinese people and alluded to charity work he does to help children on the island.
