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

A Northern California man convicted of a series of crimes, including attempted murder and the theft of celebrity chef Guy Fieri’s Lamborghini, was sentenced Thursday to life in prison plus 21 years and four months.

Max Wade, 19, had been found guilty in October of attempted murder, vehicle theft, and other crimes, the Marin Independent Journal reported. He was charged in Marin County Superior Court as an adult even though he was under 18 at the time the crimes were committed, the paper said.

Among Wade’s crimes was a drive-by shooting that occurred on April 13, 2012, in Mill Valley.

Wade was convicted of firing at a truck occupied by two acquaintances — Landon Wahstrom, 18, and Eva Dedier, 17, of San Rafael.

Prosecutors alleged that Wade desired Dedier and was jealous that she was with Wahlstrom.

The investigation of the shooting led detectives to Wade’s storage locker, where he was keeping the $200,000 sports car stolen from Fieri, known for his Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. The Lamborghini was taken in 2011 while it was at a San Francisco dealership. It was stolen by a burglar who rappelled from a high window, authorities said.

Guy Fieri testifies during trial of teen accused of stealing his Lamborghini -- VIDEO

A celebrity chef has taken the stand in the trial of a Northern California teenager accused of stealing his Lamborghini.

Guy Fieri testified for only a few minutes Monday in a Marin County courtroom saying that he does not know defendant Max Wade nor did he give Wade permission to take his $200,000 car out of a San Francisco dealership in March 2011.

The 19-year-old Wade is charged with not only theft but also the attempted murder of two teens.

Prosecutors say Wade shot at a former high school classmate and his girlfriend in Mill Valley in April 2012. That investigation led authorities to Wade’s storage container in Richmond, where they found the Food Network star’s stolen yellow Lamborghini.

Fieri told reporters he thought the theft was a “bad joke.”
