Calgary Man Can’t Cross the Border
Don’t do this if you want to travel to the United States.
A Calgary man who had been living in New York with his wife and child fleed back to Canada after doing what seems to be a series of remarkably stupid things.
Here’s how it went.
- Tang decides to try and break the record for lapping Manhattan in a sports car. This is dumb.
- Tang then uploads video to youtube in order to gain something called “street cred” or whatever. This is also dumb.
- Tang discovers New York prosecutors want to use him as an example and send him to jail, so Tang flees back to Calgary. It’s debatable how dumb this part is.
Anyway if you are interested in street racing you might not be rolling yours eyes at this one as much as I am but hopefully you know that posting evidence of a crime on the internet is not a good idea if you want to continue living, travelling, etc in the United States of America.
Now it’s important to keep in mind that even if Mr. Tang is not found guilty of this stupid crime the chances are very good that he will still need a Waiver just to cross the border again. Of course I don’t know the full details of Mr. Tang’s immigration status but none of this bodes very well for him.
If you’re interested here’s the youtube evidence. Story below.
