Adam Tang, 31, has been found guilty of reckless driving after he completed a 22-minute lap of Manhattan, sped up the video by a factor of four, and uploaded it to YouTube on August 28, 2013. To-date, the video has had more than 978,000 views. Reactions have ranged from a) Awesome! b) What bragging rights! c) Don’t the cops patrol the US streets? to d) How convenient that the evidence is uploaded to the internet and we don’t have to look for it. Tang, who also goes by the name of “Afroduck” and holds a Canadian passport, faces up to a year in jail. Sentencing will be on December 9, 2014.
