- Guy Fieri Happy Lamborghini Thief Was Convicted (guardianlv.com)
The Internet chuckled when Guy Fieri testified Monday at the trial of a teen who stole his $200,000 Lamborghini for a year-and-a-half (the celebrity chef did decline taking off his assortment of rings and bangles while walking through the Marin County, Calif. courthouse, after all).
But things are more serious after a jury found 19-year-old Max Wade guilty not only of commercial burglary and auto theft, but also attempted murder and firing a gun into an occupied vehicle, the Associated Press reports.
Prosecutors said Wade rappelled into British Motors to steal the yellow Lambo in 2011 to impress a girl. In 2012, they said, Wade drove up to the girl’s love interest and shot at him. No injuries were sustained.
Wade is facing 30 years in jail. Two people already tried to free him from the Marin County juvenile hall with sledgehammers last year.
