A video posted on Facebook by Brazil's A Voz de Anapolis shows the man use just one hand to gently guide his moped forward. He is precariously balanced on two-wheeler, on his belly. He remains in that position, gliding down the busy highway, for a little over 15 seconds.
He was filmed by a passing car near Anapolis in the state of Goias on Wednesday. Some local reports suggest the video was filmed by a member of Brazil's Federal Highway Police, or Policia Rodoviaria Federal.
Globo reports he was, in fact, arrested shortly after pulling the reckless stunt. In addition to being charged with dangerous driving, the man was accused of riding his moped without a proper helmet, having no number plate and driving without his licence and registration.
The man was released from police custody after pledging to show up at a court for sentencing.
