GIF of video re-uploaded by CBS News

“Take it down before I get in trouble,” 23-year-old Darran Anderson reportedly commented on a video of him in his BMW cutting through traffic on New York’s Long Island Expressway. That didn’t really work out for him.

Anderson was recorded doing typical streetracing bullshit yesterday on the LIE with a pair of other cars, one of which recorded the whole run and posted it to Facebook, as Metro.us, CBS News, and NBC News all report. This is the same road where that dude claimed to have run his Koenigsegg past 200 mph, if you’re curious.

Anderson attempted to get the poster to take the post down, and it was indeed removed, but not before the Nassau County Police Department saw it and tracked Anderson back to his home in the Bronx.

He faces up to a year in jail for a misdemeanor count of reckless driving.

Remember kids, what you call a cool video, the cops call evidence.
