Teen who stole Guy Fieri's Lamborghini gets life in prison

Teen Who Stole Guy Fieri's Lamborghini Gets Life In Prison

The teen who stole Food Network star Guy Fieri's Lamborghini three years ago has been sentenced to life behind bars.

According to KXTV, police say 19-year-old Max Wade stole the $200,000 car after Fieri dropped it off at a San Francisco repair shop in 2011.

But grand theft auto wasn't the crime that got the teen such a serious sentence, according to KMSP.

'Nineteen-year old Max Wade of California is also convicted of attempted murder after he fired a gun into a car carrying the girl he liked and her new boyfriend.'

No one was shot, but according to KTVU, the judge sentenced Wade to life in prison for the drive-by shooting plus 21 years and four months for a gun enhancement charge. He got another 16 months for stealing Fieri's car.

KGO-TV reports Wade also had plans to rob a renowned jewelry store in San Francisco, but the judge didn't include any punishment for that in his sentence.

Witnesses in the courtroom during the sentencing told KOFY Wade showed little emotion.

'I didn't feel comfortable walking down the same sidewalk as him. And I think in spite of his age, in spite of that, I wouldn't want my mom or my girlfriend to be walking down the same street as Max Wade.'

Wade's attorney says it could be more than 15 years before the teen is eligible for parole. The decision is expected to be appealed.

Life in prison for "attempted" murder? Really? This judge should take a look at any inner city --- those thugs (real thugs) should all get arrested and get multiple life sentences then.

It is amazing how QUICKLY individuals forget about the MILLIONS of lives that were taken at the hands of slave owners, and individuals during the Jim Crow laws, i.e. lynching. It is amazing how individuals assume the hypocritical and self-righteous mentality. Therefore, I would take a look at that inventory, as well as the MANY crimes that are committed within NON minority areas, that mysterious are NOT reported as frequently.

Okay, now this is insane. A kid in Texas kills 4 people and gets a slap on the wrist by pleading "afluenza" (may the judge burn in hell), and this guy gets life for a driveby, with no casualties?
And, by the way, writers of headlines. Stop bending the truth. He did not get life for stealing a celeb's car. Learn your trade or go flip hamburgers.

I know. He must not have been offered a plea deal and they act like he caught a break because he wasn't sentenced for going through with a robbery he had plans for...

What if it was a regular persons car would it be life in prison our laws are so messed up. Must be a kid that has poor parents cause that rich kid got off Scott freedom for killing 4 people Americas court system is so corrupt just like our evil government. Life in prison is way to long for such a crime.

I can't stand Guy Fieri so could care less about his woes. However, how long has this kid been playing Grand Theft Auto? Perhaps that game should end with your character going to jail for stealing a car and shooting a policeman and/or a prostitute. My nephews dad lets his 9 year old play Red Dead Redemption and his 13 year olds play Grand Theft Auto. Their poor mom must be rolling in her grave. : ( 19 is awful young for your life to end in prison.
