A driver who allegedly posted an Internet video of himself speeding around Manhattan in just over 24 minutes is facing charges of reckless driving, authorities said Friday. According to a criminal complaint charging Adam Tang with reckless driving, Tang claimed he never went over 100 mph and ran only one red light at a pedestrian crosswalk.
Tang, 30, appeared Friday in court in Manhattan but did not enter a plea. Bail was set at $10,000 bond or $5,000 cash. His lawyer did not respond to a phone message seeking comment. Police had arrested Tang on Thursday and seized his 2006 BMW Z4 after news reports began surfacing about a YouTube video, posted last week by a user called AfroDuck, that chronicled the nighttime stunt. A day before his arrest, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly told reporters investigators would review data from license-plate readers along Tang's route.
