Teenager with a hot Lamborghini faces a world of trouble

Police say a thief using climbing gear rappelled into a San Francisco exotic car dealership and stole television celebrity chef Guy Fieri's $200,000-plus Lamborghini sports car.

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) â?? A California teenager has been charged with the brazen theft of a Food Network star's Lamborghini convertible from a car dealership, but his problems do not end there.

Marin County prosecutors on Tuesday also charged 17-year-old Max Michael Wade as an adult with two counts of attempted murder, the Marin Independent Journal reported. Those charges stem from a shooting last month in which someone on a motorcycle fired into a truck occupied by two teenagers.

While investigating Wade as a suspect, detectives followed him to a storage container in Richmond, where they found the yellow Lamborghini belonging to celebrity chef Guy Fieri. The car was stolen in San Francisco last year by a burglar who rappelled into a dealership showroom from the roof.

The storage unit also contained a dismantled AK-47 assault rifle, another assault rifle and a San Francisco police uniform and badge.
