NYPD IDs driver in Internet video-Manhattan lap

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police have identified the driver who they say posted an Internet video of himself speeding around Manhattan in just over 24 minutes.

Police on Thursday arrested 30-year-old Christopher Adam Tang of Manhattan. They charged him with reckless driving, reckless endangerment and other charges. Police also seized his 2006 BMW Z4.

The video was posted on Aug. 28.

With a camera mounted on the dashboard, it records the car traveling southbound on the FDR Drive from 116th Street to Battery Park and then up West Street back to 116th Street. Along the 26.4-mile loop, it stops for six red lights.

Electronic dance music provides the soundtrack as a stopwatch superimposed on the screen keeps time: 24 minutes and 7 seconds.

There was no listing for Tang in Manhattan.
