LSU fans may have held their collective breath when they saw Tigers' star Derrius Guice pop a wheelie on an ATV over the weekend, but he was quick to brush off any concerns.
"I'm not a robot. I can do what makes me happy. Thank you," wrote Guice on Twitter.
Guice, a Baton Rouge native, can be seen in the video posted to Instagram on Sunday revving up the ATV, and saying "we might all fall off." He pulls off, and rocks the ATV on its back two wheels before he and a passenger fall off the back.

The pair get up, laughing as the ATV rolls off. Guice appeared no worse for wear after the trick, which he told media he had practiced, but fans were quick to react with concern on social media.
Guice responded to an article, posted by TMZ, in which the headline indicates he "barely escapes disaster."
Guice said the reference was "over the edge."
"Ain't no disaster.. I knew I was gonna flip it. I say it in the beginning," Guice posted to Twitter.
Tricks aside, Guice is off to a strong start amid high expectations in his junior year. The Catholic High alum has posted 224 yards and four touchdowns as the Tigers have coasted to a 2-0 record with wins over BYU and UT-Chattanooga. LSU next goes on the road to face Mississippi State on Saturday (6 p.m.).
