Least Surprising Thing Ever: Manhattan Speedster Afroduck Arrested
from the told-you dept
Well, that didn’t take long. Remember that jackwagon that sped around Manhattan in a mega-illegal time-window of just over twenty-four minutes? Remember how he was all: pssh, you can’t identify me! Remember how Ray Kelly decided to declare his own personal war on a man named Afroduck, proving that reality is way more insane than anything you can think of from Adult Swim?
Yeah, he got busted, and it only took a day or so.
ABC 7 News was on hand to see Afroduck get taken into custody early this morning at the 25th Precinct in East Harlem. They report that [Christopher Adam] Tang is 30 years old. He gives no comment to the reporters, and he smiles.
The report goes on to say that no details were given on how they found Tang or tied him to the dash cam video he uploaded, but when Ray Kelly boasted that they have license plate cameras for that kind of thing, he wasn’t lying. Commenters in the original piece noted that the fact Tang wasn’t pulled over as he went about his speed run seemed like a complete lack of police presence, but there’s no shortage of license plate and traffic cams.
It will be interesting to see how an arrest based so heavily on evidence from this kind of technology, assuming we don’t learn of some other method for the identification of Tang, is used in court. Until then, stop making speed runs in the country’s largest city.
