Aussie valet gives Ferrari to wrong driver

Recommended Posts

SYDNEY - An Australian man took a gleaming Ferrari for a dawn joyride Friday after mistakenly being handed the keys by a casino valet.


The red F430 Spider, reportedly the property of a professional poker millionaire playing at Melbourne's Crown Casino, vanished after the blunder.


"It has happened in the past from time to time that people lose their tickets, and in these circumstances we ask for proof of identification and a valid driver's licence," said casino spokesman Gary O'Neill.



"Those procedures were followed on this occasion."


It took police six hours to find the high-performance vehicle at a suburban service station.


A 32-year-old man was arrested at the scene and charged with theft.
