Afroduck Sentenced!

E-mail Print PDF
 

Adam Tang, the guy busted for allegedly posting an insane video of himself tearing around Manhattan (all the way around!) in 24 minutes and 7 seconds has been sentenced to jail.
 
Using the pseudonym “Afroduck,” Tang was arrested by the NYPD just 11 days after posting a video on YouTube showing his record-breaking ride.
 
Then-Police Commissioner Ray Kelly has stated publically that cops were able to catch Tang with the help of surveillance videos and license-plate readers—and not just based on his YouTube video which Tang claims fails to prove that he is the elusive "Afroduck." Based on the evidence available to them, authorities felt compelled to charge him with reckless endangerment and reckless driving for the stunt.
 
According to the guys over at Jalopnik, Tang was sentenced today to the maximum sentence of a year in jail. However, it seems that the elusive street racer continues to elude police—and is currently on the lamb in his native Canada. Whether he returns to the U.S. to face the music remains to be seen—especially since authorities seized the BMW he used to complete his record-breaking ride.
