MELBOURNE, Australia (NBC) - Mistaken identity led to a joyride in an expensive Ferrari across an Australian city Friday.
Parking lot attendants handed the keys to a $448,000 Ferrari to the wrong person at the Crown Casino in Melbourne.
The recipient didn't say a word as he was given the keys. The 32-year-old man got into the Italian luxury sports car and took off.
He drove around Melbourne for six hours until police caught and arrested him at a gas station.
Victorian Police officer Trevor Thorn says, "The owner's been notified and the vehicle has been taken and subsequently examines and then returned to the owner who I might add is very pleased that we currently have it back in custody."
The parking lot attendant didn't say if the car thief gave him a good tip.
