You would think a 49-year old man from Sebring, Florida would not do anything wrong. He’s a truck driver who carries hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars worth of cars on a single trip. Certainly, he knows his job well enough after all these years.
Apparently, he doesn’t. Your Houston News reported that Ronald Francis Kelly was charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle after being caught behind the wheel of a 2011 C6 Corvette with a female passenger.
A two-day layover was too much to bear for Kelly. He was bored out of his mind waiting for the next load to arrive and he thought, why not call up his girlfriend and take a ride in someone’s 2011 Corvette that he was delivering for a joyride on New Year’s Day.
It ended up not being the wisest idea for the Florida man when he was pulled over by police for an undetermined traffic violation. They found that he was not the actual owner on the registration, and was just a joyrider.
Next in the series of events, the cops called the trucking company and the actual owner of the vehicle to affirm the poor bored out of his mind delinquent. Upon finding out, the owner immediately pressed charges leaving Kelly held with a $20,000 bond on his head for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
Hopefully, this teaches other 49-year old men to learn from Kelly’s slip of apathy, and to not commit auto felonies like the anti-hero of this story did. But at least nobody was shot and killed this time.
