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.
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.
