Man Arrested for 24-Minute Lap of Manhattan

A normal person driving a lap of Manhattan will take about 45 minutes to do it, Chris Tang set a record for risking everybody's lives by doing it in just over 24 minutes last week, and wisely posted the video to YouTube under the alias of "Afroduck."

Needless to say, the police were looking for Afroduck immediately. Using suveillance footage from around his route police were able to identify him and his vehicle. Tang is being charged with reckless endangerment and reckless driving, and his license has been suspended by a judge. 

For those of you who live in New York and want to drive like a maniac, we reccommend the Monticello Motor Club or finding a local autocross group. It's about an hour and 40 minutes from Manhattan, unless you're Afroduck, in which case it would probably take about an hour.
