Tang posted the video on YouTube last September under the name “Afroduck.”

Tuesday, Tang, 30, refused to plead guilty to reckless endangerment and serve 60-days in jail.

In an online interview before he was nabbed by cops, Afroduck bragged about being an “in control” driver and claimed, “You can’t tell who I am just by looking at a video.”

Tang says he wants to go to trial because he “didn’t act recklessly.”
