Man steals Ferrari 458 Italia, gets away, and then steals it again from the impound lot!
The man was identified as Earnie Hooks of Los Angeles. Hooks got his hooks into the brand new 2014 Ferrari 458 spider and made no attempts to hide it, driving it around the city. Police in Fontana, a town about 50 miles east of Los Angeles, discovered Hooks and the Ferrari at a DUI checkpoint on August 29th. Upon discovering that the Ferrari was reported stolen, they attempted to make an arrest but Hooks fled on foot, abandoning the car. At around 3 in the morning the following day, Hooks entered the impound lot and stole the Ferrari again!
