Meanwhile, in Australia…

Valet parking is tops. Nothing beats having someone else find your car, warm that sucker up, and drive it to the door for you. Most of the time, the system works without a hitch; sometimes, you end up driving off in a brand-spanking new $355,000 Ferrari.

Adam Ramsay, 32, was given the Ferrari after flashing his license to the valet at Crown Casino, and was allowed to drive off without showing his valet ticket. He was found several hours later, filling up the tank at a gas station, having just reported to the police on bail for a Romanian credit card scam. He had just been sentenced to 35 months in prison. Ramsay, of Flemington, pleaded guilty to theft of a motor vehicle.

Defence lawyer George Douglas said Ramsay was conspicuous and bound to be caught.

“There aren’t too many red Ferraris in Broadmeadows.”

A four-month sentence was imposed, but has been made concurrent with the sentence already being served.
