New York - New York City police have arrested the driver
who they say posted an internet video of himself speeding around Manhattan in
just over 24 minutes.
Police have charged 30-year-old Christopher Adam Tang
with reckless driving, reckless endangerment and other charges.
Police also seized his 2006 BMW Z4.
The video was posted on 28 August. A camera mounted on
the dashboard shows the car travelling along the 42.5km loop, while stopping
for six red lights.
Electronic dance music provides the soundtrack as a
stopwatch superimposed on the screen keeps time: 24 minutes and 7 seconds.
