Guy Fieri Lambo Update: Prosecutors Call For More Charges Against Teen Thief
If the teenager who participated in the James Bondian heist of cat burgling Guy Fieri’s $220,000 Lamborghini out of a dealership in the middle of the night isn’t part of Roadhouse 4: Pain Still Don’t Hurt, then @DadBoner is seriously missing out on a ripped-from-the-headlines opportunity.
Last year, 17-year-old Max Wade performed an impressive feat of grand theft auto, driving right out of the dealership in Fieri’s sweet ride after rappelling in from the roof. He then used the car to impress a girl by executing a drive-by shooting past her and her boyfriend. (Her boyf was the one he was shooting at.)

He was eventually arrested when the car was recovered in a storage unit belonging to Wade. But it gets better. While he was waiting patiently in juvy for his hearing, a bunch of friends tired to bust him out with sledgehammers at 4:30 in the morning.
Now, Marin County District Attorney Yvette Martinez-Shaw is trying to add charges of deterring officers through threats or violence, and possessing a loaded, concealed, stolen weapon. According to the officers who first arrested him, he reached into his waistband for a .45-caliber pistol, and had to be subdued by force before being taken into custody. These charges would stack up on top of attempted murder (for the drive-by), vehicle theft, and more.
Max Wade pleaded not guilty to all of the above.
