A YouTuber allegedly faked a medical episode in the middle of Times Square traffic — and then posting video of the ordeal to his channel, police said.
Zeeshan Saroya, 30, was arrested around 5:30 p.m. Thursday and charged in connection to the Jan. 10 incident that unfolded at Broadway and West 46th Street, cops said.
Saroya, who goes by Prince Zee on Instagram, posted a 13-minute video Monday of his scheme, racking up more than 150,000 views.
“We’re going to see what they’re going to do, what New Yorkers are going to do, how they’re going to help this ‘dead guy’,” Saroya said at the start of the video as he talked out the plan.
The incident unfolded at Broadway and West 46th Street just before 3 p.m., cops said.
Saroya’s video shows him driving when he suddenly slumps over, hitting his head on the steering wheel, causing it to go off.
Responding officers used their batons to break the car window and dragged him out of the vehicle.
Later in the clip, Saroya said he simply told cops he “was taking two pre-workouts and a Red Bull.” He was briefly taken into an ambulance, but allowed to go home his own way when someone came to pick him up.
Saroya was charged with obstructing governmental administration, false reporting of an incident, criminal nuisance and disorderly conduct, according to police.
He was released on a desk appearance ticket.
Saroya has 159,000 YouTube subscribers. Other popular videos on his channel include, “Beating a Baby in Public,” “Lighting a Baby on Fire” and “Pooping in an Adult Diaper around NYC.”
