A grand jury has indicted a man accused of taking a high-speed joyride around Manhattan.

Christopher Tang, 30, is charged with reckless endangerment and reckless driving.

Police say Tang posted a YouTube video of him racing around the perimeter of Manhattan back in August.

The video was sped up so you could see the whole trip in a few minutes, but police say Tang claimed that he completed the 26-mile loop in just 24 minutes.

Police arrested Tang soon after the video surfaced, and they confiscated his 2006 BMW Z-4.
