    if it was my car i would drop the charges, and make him work work it off, you know like cut the grass, rake some leaves, wash the car he stole every week for a year, change the oil and rotate the tires stuff like that etc kinda like an indentured servant

    The mugshot should be an indicator that the elivator doesn't go to the top floor.

    Interesting...wonder how the magistrate could find probable cause for the charge of Larceny of a MV when one of the criteria for the charge is "with the intent to deny the owner of its use permenantly". ~DENNY CRANE~

    How many people bring them back...none...I hope they put that into consideration and cut this guy some slack. Honestly. Maybe the owners are MAD he brought it back! Maybe they didn't want it back and thats why they are mad?!
