Feds Won't Pay For Ferrari Wrecked By FBI Agent
« on: May 20, 2011, 09:36:44 PM »

The king can do no wrong >:(

DETROIT -- The U.S. Justice Department is refusing to pay $750,000 to a Michigan insurance company for a Ferrari that was wrecked in Kentucky during a drive by an FBI agent.

In a recent court filing in Detroit, the Justice Department says itís immune to tort claims when certain goods are in the hands of law enforcement.

The 1995 Ferrari F50 was being stored in Lexington, Ky., as part of an investigation into stolen vehicles.

A prosecutor says he was invited by an FBI agent to ride in the vehicle in May 2009. He says the agent lost control, and the car landed against bushes and a small tree.

Southfield-based Motors Insurance Co. says the Ferrari is a total loss. The next court hearing is June 13 in Detroit.

I think the easy way out of the responsibility is to indite the FBI Agent with 'TWOCing', taking the car without the owners, or in this case the legal custodians, consent. The insurers can then seek what damages they may get from the out of work D/head G man. :D

Sounds about right, though the court will decide whether the guy was acting as an agent of the government or an idiot out joy riding. It will be hard reaching him at the FBI office in Fairbanks, or was it Guam.
