Drunk Guy Steals Limo, Takes Passengers on Terrifying Joy Ride

Early May 7, a drunk man allegedly stole an idling limo, terrifying its five passengers as he took them on a brief joy ride through Manhattan before crashing.

DNA Info reports that the stretch limo, a white Lincoln Town Car, was parked in the West Village at about 3:15 a.m. when 24-year-old Marwan Elbordiny allegedly hopped in the driver's seat—the driver had stepped out for some reason—and drove off.

Elbordiny made it several blocks before crashing into a car.

From DNA Info:

When police arrived, Elbordiny smelled of alcohol and he was flushed, glassy-eyed and unsteady on his feet, the NYPD said. He blew a .181 on a blood alcohol test, more than twice the legal driving limit of .08, police said.

The passengers were, understandably, terrified but unharmed.
