SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) — The trial of a Northern California teenager charged with the brazen theft of celebrity chef Guy Fieri’s Lamborghini sports car from a San Francisco dealership has started in a Marin County courtroom.
Max Wade, 19, has been charged with commercial burglary and auto theft in the 2011 heist that was pulled off by a burglar who rappelled into the British Motors dealership and drove off in Fieri’s $200,000 convertible, which was being repaired. He is being tried as an adult, although he was a minor when the theft occurred.
Marin County authorities who were investigating Wade in an unrelated drive-by shooting found the missing car last year when they followed him to a storage facility across San Francisco Bay.
Wade also has been charged with attempted murder in the shooting, which involved a girl whom Wade allegedly liked and her boyfriend. Neither was injured.
