Window Seat 25 Jan 18

MARRIOTT International is being sued by the owner of a $500,000 Ferrari, claiming a hotel valet gave his keys to the wrong customer. 73-year-old lawyer James Fowler parked his yellow 458 Italia Spider outside the Vinoy Renaissance Resort & Golf Club in St Petersburg, Florida, leaving it there for more than 12 hours while he attended an event. It’s alleged that a young man trying to impress a lady turned up and demanded the keys, jumping in and driving off with her before a policeman stopped him for driving without taillights. He admitted taking the car but claims it wasn’t theft because the valet gave him the keys. However he’s facing charges of cocaine possession and driving with a suspended licence.
