New York City police arrested a 30-year-old man they say posted a video to YouTube where he claims to have made the 26.5-mile loop around Manhattan in 24 minutes and seven seconds in a BMW Z3.
Christopher Adam Tang, 30, was charged with reckless driving and reckless endangerment; his car was seized by police, the report said, MyFoxNY.com reported.
The trip starts at the intersection of the FDR Drive, which runs along the east side of Manhattan, and 116th Street. The car drives south along the FDR before heading back up the West Side Highway and turning east at the George Washington Bridge.
The video poster claims he made the time despite having to stop at six red lights.
The alleged driver, who goes by the code name AfroDuckProduction, says he made the run on August 26. He says he broke the 27-minute record set in 2001 even though he had to stop at several red lights.
