Driver Who Made 24-Minute Lap of Manhattan Arrested Again

View Comments ()



    Police seized Christopher Adam Tang's 2006 BMW Z4 last summer.

    A driver facing criminal charges after he drove a lap around Manhattan in 24 minutes has been caught driving again — after his license was suspended.

    A Manhattan judge raised Adam Tang's bond from $10,000 to $25,000 on Tuesday because of his April 5 arrest in the Bronx.

    Defense lawyer Gregory Gomez says Tang pleaded guilty to unlicensed driving, a traffic infraction, and paid a fine. Bronx prosecutors couldn't provide information on the now-sealed case.

    Gomez declined to comment on why Tang was driving.

    In September, Tang was arrested after a dashboard-camera video showed a BMW making a 26.4-mile loop around Manhattan in 24 minutes and 7 seconds. His license was suspended as a bail condition.

    Tang has pleaded not guilty to reckless endangerment, a misdemeanor.

    Gomez has said there's no proof Tang acted recklessly.
