On Wednesday, August 25th, Alprentice was riding down E188th St, in the Bronx when he crossed Webster Avenue and was struck by a southbound passengar car. Only 30 minutes before he had spoken to his girlfriend, Maria Cipolla, and promised he would spend time with her, saying "I'll call you back .... I love you."
The driver of the vehicle was simply issued a summons for driving without a license, which normally is an arrestable offense.
Maria continues to maintain Alprentice's Facebook page where many people, especially Maria, express their love for him.
