'Fastest Loop Of Manhattan' Driver Arrested
New York City police have arrested a 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 Tang with reckless driving, reckless endangerment and other offences.
The NYPD also seized his 2006 BMW Z4, which is capable of doing 0-60mph in around six seconds.
Tang has appeared in court in Manhattan to face the charges, with bail set at $10,000 bond or $5,000 cash.
The video, Fastest Loop Of Manhattan 2013, was posted anonymously on August 28 and has attracted more than 360,000 hits.
A camera mounted on the dashboard shows the car travelling along the 26.4 mile (42.5km) loop, while stopping for six red lights.
The video shows the car heading south on the FDR Drive from 116th Street to Battery Park and then up West Street back to 116th Street.
A stopwatch superimposed on the screen keeps time as the sports car darts between vehicles in its path, stopping after 24 minutes and seven seconds.
Tang told reporters "I'll comment later" as he was led away in handcuffs following his arrest.
